Technical Assistance Opportunity: Multimodal Community Connections Planning Framework
FTA is teaming up with the Federal Highway Administration to offer technical assistance to test the Framework for Better Integrating Health into Transportation Corridor Planning in up to five states or local transportation agencies. The technical assistance will support transportation agencies in developing data-driven, performance-based decision-making to incorporate multimodal access and improved health outcomes into corridor planning. The results should enhance collaboration with stakeholders, safeguard communities, and build partnerships that promote a healthy environment, accessibility and economic revitalization.
Teams should be led by the state, regional or local transportation agency advancing the corridor study. Partnerships are welcome and may include community advocacy groups; land use or economic development agencies; transit providers; public health agencies; or others. Any transportation corridor may be proposed for testing, which runs August 2018-July 2020.
Interested agencies should submit a two- to three-page letter of interest to Victoria Martinez or Alan Tabachnick by July 6, 2018. For additional information, see the Framework technical assistance fact sheet.
