Creating Livable Communities: A Primer on the Federal New Starts/Small Starts Transit Program
Reconnecting America is sponsoring a webinar Wednesday, March 10, from 3pm to 4pm EST that will feature FTA Deputy Administrator Therese McMillan and local transportation advocate Jim Erkel, Minnesota Center for Environmental Advocacy.
The $2 billion Federal Transit Administration (FTA) New Starts and Small Starts programs provides critical funding to support new transit investment in communities including street cars, buses, and light rail. This webinar provides an introduction to this important federal transit program, including: the process of developing a project for federal approval, how social equity and environmental sustainability goals can be advanced, and what the recently announced policy changes by the FTA mean for promoting livable communities at the local and regional levels through this program.
