FTA’s Transit Community Organization Webinar: Understanding Federal Roles, Programs, and Resources to Support Transit


This webinar will be the first in a webinar series to provide community-based organizations a better understanding of FTA’s programs, oversight, and technical assistance resources. The series will provide organizations that support local public transportation initiatives, bicycling and pedestrian safety, and complete streets projects with a deeper understanding of federal resources while offering participants the chance to share their experiences and feedback with FTA leaders.

This webinar will introduce FTA’s mission, programs, and role in local projects, with a focus on:

  • FTA funding programs
  • Federal and local government roles
  • Funding eligibility requirements
  • Oversight of public transportation agencies
  • Priorities under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law

Participants will also learn about FTA’s technical assistance and regional resources available to assist communities. Featured speakers will include FTA Administrator Nuria Fernandez and USDOT Director of Public Engagement Lynda Tran. A panel of FTA and USDOT officials will then respond to questions submitted by registered participants and engage with participants on their local needs.
