The insight2050 Technical Assistance Program (TA Program) provides assistance to MORPC members for the planning of sustainable transportation and community development efforts. TA program services are intended to help communities:
- Increase multimodal transportation options within their community
- Enhance quality of life by improving mobility, accessibility, safety, and reducing the negative public health impacts of transportation
- Improve connectivity to community assets and support reinvestment in underutilized properties through infill and redevelopment planning
- Prepare for emerging transportation by leveraging technology and infrastructure to maximize safety, sustainability, affordability, equity, and quality of life for all residents
The TA Program awards technical assistance services through a competitive application process. Only MORPC members within the Metropolitan Planning Organization area are eligible.
The TA Program application must be submitted via email to Tobi Otulana at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 5 p.m. on September 27, 2019. Applications received after that time will not be considered for technical assistance.
