Community Planning Program and Local Technical Assistance Program
For the past several years, CMAP and the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) have partnered to link CMAP's Local Technical Assistance (LTA) program with the RTA's Community Planning program. Usually, CMAP and the RTA issue a joint call for projects in May of each year to solicit project ideas for the following year. Unfortunately, due to state budget issues, neither agency will be issuing a call for projects this year. Both agencies will focus on fulfilling their existing commitments to projects that have already been selected in past years. The intent is to continue these programs and resume the call for projects in 2017. If you have questions, please contact Samyukth Shenbaga at CMAP (312-386-8704 or firstname.lastname@example.org) or Heather Tabbert at the RTA (312-913-3244 or email@example.com).
