With support from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the National Association of Development Organizations (NADO) Research Foundation will hold a series of virtual peer exchanges exploring how transportation and economic development planning practitioners can work together to maximize the economic impact of infrastructure investments, grow businesses and jobs, and strengthen the livability and vitality of communities and regions.

This five-event series will provide best practice examples and hands-on training on topics such as using economic analysis to sharpen transportation decision making, engaging business and workforce stakeholders in the transportation planning process, leveraging non-traditional funding sources, aligning transportation and economic development plans, and taking advantage of new economic opportunities stemming from enhancements to transportation networks.

In order to make these virtual peer exchanges as useful as possible, the NADO Research Foundation is seeking input from state and regional transportation and economic development professionals.
