Programs & Resources
This section of the CMAP website includes information about important program activities that are distinct from -- yet that also support -- implementation of the GO TO 2040 plan, among other regional objectives. Also linked below are resources that include recent and older publications, training, and selected archival web pages.
Local Technical Assistance (LTA)
CMAP has initiated 112 LTA projects with local governments, nonprofits, and intergovernmental organizations to address local issues at the intersection of transportation, land use, and housing, including the natural environment, economic growth, and community development.
Local Ordinances and Toolkits
CMAP provides model plans, ordinances, codes, and other tools to municipalities interested in pursuing policies that are aligned with GO TO 2040 recommendations.
Regional Transportation Programs
CMAP manages a number of federal funding programs for transportation, including the Surface Transportation, Transportation Alternatives, Transportation Improvement, and Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Programs.
CMAP provides training for municipal officials and others who want to learn about tools for planning, GIS, economic development, data analysis, and more.
To inform agency work and track the progress of GO TO 2040 implementation, CMAP conducts a biennial survey of municipal governments.
