FTA to Award TOD Pilot Program Grants

The Federal Transit Administration is accepting applications for a pilot program of transit-oriented planning grants.

The agency said it will provide $13 million in the grants during the current federal fiscal year. Applications are being accepted through July 25, 2022.

In a news release FTA said the grants provide “funding to communities to integrate land use and transportation planning in new fixed guideway and core capacity transit project corridors.”

Applicants must show how a grant will be used to improve economic development and ridership potential, foster multimodal connectivity and accessibility, improve transit access for pedestrian and bicycle traffic, engage the private sector, identify infrastructure needs, and enable mixed-use development near transit stations.

The FTA said that to ensure that planning work “reflects the needs and aspirations of the local community and results in concrete, specific deliverables and outcomes,” transit project sponsors must partner with entities with land use planning authority in the project corridor. Only one application per transit capital project corridor may be submitted.
