FHWA and FTA are seeking transportation agencies to “beta” test a new planning Framework.
The Framework is a step-by-step process for agencies to follow to encourage them to think
holistically about the health impacts of decisions made in the corridor planning
processes. As part of the Framework’s development, FHWA is seeking up to five agencies
across the country to test the Framwork during an upcoming or active corridor study.
Although there is no direct funding allocation associated with this opportunity, technical
assistance will be provided by a consultant lead research team. Any agency with an
interest in this opportunity should visit this link for more information and who to
contact. The deadline to submit an application to be considered a a beta test site is
November 26, 2014.
