The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is offering technical assistance to test a Multimodal Corridor Planning Framework in up to 5 State, regional, or local transportation agencies. The purpose of this technical assistance is to support transportation agencies while using the Framework to improve health outcomes and enhance community considerations. The focus is on the needs of the community that the selected corridor serves by enhancing collaboration and building partnerships that promote a healthy environment, accessibility and economic revitalization.

The test team should be led by the State, regional, or local transportation agency advancing the corridor study. Partnerships are welcome and may include community advocacy groups; land use or economic development agencies; transit providers; public health agencies; or others. Any transportation corridor may be proposed for testing during the study period (August 2018 – July 2020). Agencies interested in participating should submit a short (2 or 3 page) letter of interest to Victoria Martinez at victoria.martinez@dot.gov, or Alan Tabachnick at alan.tabachnick@dot.gov by July 6, 2018. For additional information, see the Technical Assistance Fact Sheet.
