FTA Announces $10M Grant Program

The Federal Transit Authority this week said it has available $10 million in competitive grant funding under its Pilot Program for Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Planning

Grants will be awarded in support of comprehensive planning efforts that help connect communities, improve access to public transportation and affordable housing, and combat climate change, advance environmental justice and promote equitable delivery of benefits to underserved communities, FTA said in a news release.

Priority will be given to projects that will help improve air quality in nonattainment and maintenance areas for certain criteria pollutants under the National Ambient Air Quality Standards and promote equitable delivery of benefits and services to underserved communities. 

This could include comprehensive planning studies around station areas for new fixed guideway projects, such as light rail, heavy rail, commuter rail, or bus rapid transit systems that have a designated right-of-way.
