During 2020, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) will offer several virtual peer exchanges on value capture strategies. Value capture is a set of strategies that agencies can use to recover some costs of transportation investments that result in increased land values. Value capture strategies help cities, counties, townships, and tribes face funding challenges and keep roadways in good condition.

The series features presenters who have successfully used value capture techniques, such as transportation impact fees, special assessments, tax increment finance, transportation utility fees, joint development, and capture value from existing assets, to fund previously unfunded infrastructure projects. Registration is free but limited to 300 participants. Learn more and register here.

The series will include the following dates and topics:

May 7 – Maximizing Value Capture by Leveraging Infrastructure Banks
May 14 – Use Transportation Utility Fees to Fund Roadway Maintenance and Enhance Safety
June 18 – Developer Contributions
July 23 – Special Assessment Districts
August 20 – Advertising, Naming Rights, and Sponsorships
September 24 – Tax Incremental Finance Districts and Transportation Reinvestment Zones
October 22 – Joint Development and Use of Right-of-Way Agreements
