U.S. Department of Transportation: Pilot Program for Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) Planning Grant 

Deadline: July 22, 2024 

Amount: $13 million is program total  

Eligibility: State or local governmental authorities  

URLhttps://www.transit.dot.gov/TOD 

Purpose: FTA seeks to fund planning activities under the TOD Pilot Program that: 

● Reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the transportation sector, incorporate evidence-based  climate resilience measures and features, reduce the lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions  from the project materials, avoid adverse environmental impacts, and address negative  environmental impacts (past, present, and future) on disadvantaged communities,  consistent with Executive Order 14008, Tackling the ClimateCrisis at Home and Abroad  (86 FR7619). 

● Remove transportation-related disparities in the project area, and ensure equitable access to  project benefits, particularly for communities that have experienced decades of  underinvestment and are most impacted by climate change, pollution, and environmental  hazards, consistent with Executive Order 13985, Advancing Racial Equity and Support for  Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government (86 FR 7009). 

● Address equity and environmental justice, particularly for communities that have  experienced decades of underinvestment and are most impacted by climate change,  pollution, and environmental hazards, consistent with Executive Order 14008, Tackling the  Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad (86 FR 7619). 

● Support the creation of good-paying jobs with the free and fair choice to join a union and  the incorporation of strong labor standards and training and placement programs,  especially registered apprenticeships, in project planning stages, consistent with Executive  Order 14025, Worker Organizing and Empowerment (86 FR 22829), and Executive Order 14052, Implementation of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (86 FR 64335). 

● Support wealth creation, consistent with the Department’s Equity Action Plan, through the  inclusion of local inclusive economic development and entrepreneurship such as the  utilization of Disadvantaged Business Enterprises, Minority-owned Businesses, Women Owned Businesses, or Section 8(a) firms. 

● Advance TOD projects that potentially qualify for Transportation Infrastructure Finance  and Innovation Act (TIFIA) and Railroad Rehabilitation & Improvement Financing (RRIF)  financing, as authorized at 23 U.S.C. 601(a)(12)(E) and 49 U.S.C. 22402(b)(1)(F),  respectively, once the TOD planning study is complete. Additionally, in support of the  Federal ‘‘House America Initiative’’ led by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban  Development, FTA will strongly prioritize the award of TOD planning grants in areas of  high incidence rates of homelessness, in the hope of providing opportunities for localities  to address housing affordability in these areas and homelessness holistically through their  planning processes. 

The TOD Pilot Program intends to fund comprehensive or site-specific planning that (1) supports  economic development; increased transit ridership, value capture, multimodal connectivity, and  accessibility; increased transit access for pedestrian and bicycle traffic; and mixed-use and mixed income development near transit stations; (2) delivers 40 percent of the overall benefits of the  planning work to Historically Disadvantaged Communities (defined below), consistent with the  Justice40 Initiative; and (3) supports the development of affordable housing, mitigates climate  change, and addresses challenges facing environmental justice populations and homelessness.  

The TOD Pilot Program also encourages the identification of infrastructure needs and engagement with the private sector. FTA also encourages TOD planning in areas where communities are trying  to preserve, protect, and increase the supply of affordable housing. For assets that were acquired  with Federal assistance and are no longer needed for the originally authorized purpose, section  6609 of the Fiscal Year 2022 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) (Pub. L. 117–81)  allows FTA to authorize the transfer of the asset to a local governmental authority, non-profit  organization, or other third-party entity with no further obligations to FTA if, among other factors,  it will be used for TOD that includes affordable housing (49 U.S.C. 5334(h)(1)).  

FTA is seeking comprehensive planning projects that cover an entire transit capital project  corridor or site specific planning projects. To ensure that any proposed planning work both reflects  the needs and aspirations of the local community and results in concrete, specific deliverables, and  outcomes, FTA will only select proposals in which the transit project sponsor partners with  entities with land use planning authority in the transit project corridor to conduct the planning  work.

https://grants.gov/search-results-detail/354602 

The Charging and Fueling Infrastructure Discretionary Grant Program (CFI Program) is a new  competitive grant program created by President Biden's Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to strategically deploy publicly accessible electric vehicle charging and alternative fueling  infrastructure in the places people live and work, urban and rural areas alike, in addition to  along designated Alternative Fuel Corridors (AFCs). CFI Program investments will make  modern and sustainable infrastructure accessible to all drivers of electric, hydrogen, propane,  and natural gas vehicles. This program provides two funding categories of grants: (1)  Community Charging and Fueling Grants (Community Program); and (2) Alternative Fuel  Corridor Grants (Corridor Program). The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law provides $2.5 billion  over five years for this program. This first round of funding makes $700 million from Fiscal  Years 2022 and 2023 funding available to strategically deploy electric vehicle (EV) charging  infrastructure and other fueling infrastructure projects in urban and rural communities in  publicly accessible locations, including downtown areas and local neighborhoods, particularly  in underserved and disadvantaged communities.  

This final rule establishes a requirement for the number of ports at a charging station. Any time  charging stations are installed there is a required minimum of 4 ports, notwithstanding the type  of port (Direct Current Fast Charger (DCFC) or alternating current (AC) Level 2 or a  combination of DCFC and AC Level 2). Additionally, in all instances when a DCFC charging  station is installed along and designed to serve users of designated AFCs, there must be at least  four network-connected DCFC charging ports.
