Reconnecting America recently completed Are We There Yet?, a project that established benchmarks against which regions across America can be measured. Allison Brooks offers an overview of the report and all that went into it.

Part of getting there – complete communities – involves our unique tools to help communities sort the implementation needs of transit communities. Abby Thorne-Lyman and Chris Yake explain this in “People + Places = Possiblity.”

Much of this work would benefit from support in Congress. The transportation bill passed in June had positive points, but, by omission, some negatives. Sarah Kline explains the outcome of the wrangling in “What MAP-21 Means for Complete Communities.”
