These may be of interest.
This past summer I helped get the word out for FHWA regarding technical
assistance being offered to agencies interested in implementing their
Framework for Better Integrating Health into Transportation Corridor
Six agencies were selected to receive technical assistance, but the
strong interest far exceeded the funding available. As a new option,
FHWA is offering /virtual /technical assistance to any transportation
agency interested in using the Framework to incorporate multi-modal
access, improve health outcomes, and enhance community considerations.
This webinar series will describe the Framework and how it can be used
in corridor planning, introduce corridor studies where the Framework has
been used successfully, and provide a forum for practitioner discussion
and information exchange.
Access to the Registration Page for each webinar is provided below. Feel
free to pass this along to your colleagues.
*Webinar 1: Making Healthy Connections Framework - Getting Started*
