2017 LTA Call for Projects

CMAP has established the Local Technical Assistance (LTA) program to direct resources to communities to pursue planning work that helps to implement GO TO 2040.  In conjunction with the RTA's Community Planning program, CMAP held a call for LTA projects in spring and summer 2017.  Applications were due on June 29, 2017. memo summarizing basic application statistics, the review process, and brief overviews of submitted projects is now available here. Project selection is expected in early October.   

In total, 80 applications were submitted by 69 different applicants to the LTA program.  An additional 13 applications were submitted to the RTA for consideration through their Community Planning program.  Details of the projects being reviewed by the RTA are available on their website.  

Project types this year showed some variation from past years.  Subarea or corridor plans were the most common types of plans this year, with 27 applications.  15 transportation-related plans were submitted this year, a decline from 24 in the previous application round, but many of the corridor plans included significant transportation components.  Very few environmentally-focused plans were submitted as stand-alone projects, although many other applications did have environmental components.
