2016 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, and the Cook County Department of Public Health's (CCDPH) Healthy HotSpot program, CMAP held a call for LTA projects in spring and summer 2015.  Applications were due on June 25, 2015. memo summarizing basic application statistics, the review process, and brief overviews of submitted projects is now available. Project selection is expected in early October.   

In total, 72 applications were submitted by 61 different applicants to the LTA program.  This includes 15 projects that are also eligible for CCDPH funding as well.  An additional 17 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.  

A variety of project types were submitted. Transportation-related projects were the most common, with 24 proposals submitted.  These primarily dealt with bicycle and pedestrian planning, active transportation, and Complete Streets, and 15 of these are eligible for funding through CCDPH's Healthy HotSpot program. Plans that dealt with a specific corridor or subarea were also common, as were comprehensive plans.  Project applications can be downloaded below.
