Pilot Program for Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Planning

Notice of Funding Opportunity for the Pilot Program for Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Planning.

The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) announces the availability of approximately $1 9. 19 million in Pilot Program for TOD Planning funding to support comprehensive planning associated with


new fixed guideway and core capacity improvement projects.

FTA may award amounts ranging from $250,000 to $2,000,00 0. The Pilot Program for TOD Planning provides funding to local communities to integrate land use and transportation planning in new fixed guideway and core capacity transit project corridors.

As required by statute, any comprehensive planning funded through the pilot program must examine ways to improve economic development and ridership, 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 statute also requires that the planning work be associated with a new fixed guideway or core capacity transit project as defined in Federal transit statute (49 USC 5309(a); also see the NOFO for the definitions).

Consistent with statutory direction, FTA is seeking comprehensive planning projects covering an entire transit capital project corridor, rather than proposals that involve planning for individual station areas or only a small section of the corridor.

To ensure that planning work reflects the needs and aspirations of the local community and results in concrete, specific deliverables and outcomes, FTA is requiring that transit project sponsors partner with entities with land use planning authority in the transit project corridor.

Additional Information of Eligibility:
Applicants under the TOD Pilot Program must be FTA grantees (i.e.,existing direct and designated recipients) as of the publication date of this NOFO.

An applicant must either be the project sponsor of an eligible transit capital project as defined in section C, subsection 3 of this NOFO or an entity with land use planning authority in an eligible transit capital project corridor.

Except in cases where an applicant is both the sponsor of an eligible transit project and has land use authority in at least a portion of the transit project corridor, the transit project sponsor and at least one entity in the project corridor with land use planning authority must partner on the proposed comprehensive planning project.

Documentation of this partnership must be included with the application; see section D, subsection 2 of this NOFO for further information.
