CMAP established the Local Technical Assistance (LTA) program to direct resources to communities pursuing planning work that helps to implement GO TO 2040.
The 2017 LTA and Community Planning Call for Projects is now closed.
In October 2017, the CMAP board approved 34 new LTA projects to help local governments, nonprofits, and intergovernmental collaborators address issues at the intersections of transportation, land use, and quality of life. This year, CMAP staff recommended proposals that align with GO TO 2040 and ongoing work toward ON TO 2050, the region’s next comprehensive plan that is scheduled for adoption in October 2018. The agency also selected projects that focus on implementing previous LTA plans, collaborating across multiple jurisdictions, and/or planning in communities with the highest need for assistance.
