Dear Colleague,

 

As you consider appropriations priorities for FY21, we urge you to support the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) Pilot Program for Transit-Oriented Development Planning. The Pilot Program for TOD Planning provides grants for the planning, preparation,
or design of projects. Eligible applicants have an associated new fixed guideway or core capacity improvement project. These Planning grants are a critical tool for maximizing the value of the large federal investment that comes with the awarding of a Capital
Investment Grant. Additionally, the grants help localities intelligently conduct land use planning while the new transit corridor is being constructed or expanded. The utilization and expansion of transit-oriented development is critical to revitalizing our
cities, reducing pollution and congestion, and enhancing economic opportunity.

We are requesting that this important program be funded at $15 million for FY21, or the highest authorized level.

If you have any additional questions, please contact Hannah Stern with Rep. Peters at Hannah.stern@mail.house.gov or Olivia Hussey with Rep. Moulton at Olivia.hussey@mail.house.gov .

 

Sincerely,

 

Rep. Scott Peters                                                            Rep. Seth Moulton
