Overview

The Pilot Program for TOD Planning helps support FTA’s mission of improving public transportation for America’s communities by providing funding to local communities to integrate land use and transportation planning around a new fixed guideway or core capacity improvement project. Per statute, any comprehensive or site-specific planning funded through the 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.

Please Note, eligibly includes having been an FTA grantee. Any comprehensive or site-specific planning work proposed for funding under this program must be associated with an eligible transit capital project, such as a new fixed guideway or a core capacity improvement project, as defined in Section 5309(a) of title 49, United States Code. These statutory definitions are also provided in section (C)(3)(i) of the notice of funding opportunity (NOFO). Projects are not required to be within the Capital Investment Grants Program. Applicants, and eventual grant recipients, under this program must be existing FTA grantees as of the publication date of the NOFO. A proposer must either be the project sponsor of an eligible transit capital project as defined above or an entity with land use planning authority in an eligible transit capital project corridor. Evidence of a partnership between these two types of entities will be required unless the applicant has both responsibilities. Please refer to the NOFO for further information. Only one application per transit capital project corridor may be submitted to FTA. Multiple applications submitted for a single transit capital project corridor indicate to FTA that partnerships are not in place and FTA will reject all of the applications.
