2014 LTA Call for Projects

About the 2014 LTA Program

CMAP 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 2013.  Applications were due on June 26, 2013. A memo summarizes applications received and the review process. A final list of selected projects and press release from November 2013 are available. 

In total, 67 applications were submitted by 58 different applicants to the LTA program.  An additional 18 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

Applications were received from across the entire region, and were submitted by a variety of groups.  Most were submitted by local governments (municipalities and counties) but some were submitted by other units of government or by nongovernmental groups.  Many projects – at least 15 – contained multijurisdictional components.

A variety of project types were submitted.  The most common type of project was a transportation plan (14), and many of these focused on bicycle and pedestrian elements.  Other common project types included subarea or corridor plans (13) and comprehensive plans (12).  Project applications can be downloaded below.
