TCP FY 2023 Selected Recipients

On April 15, 2024, U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg announced $23.6 million in cooperative agreements with three National Capacity Builders (TCP-N) and six Regional Capacity Builders (TCP-R) through the second round of funding for the Thriving Communities Program. A total of 112 communities will receive support through the second round of the program, bringing the total number of communities supported to 176 across the two program years.

National Program Selections

Three National Capacity Builders will provide support to the 52 communities across 35 states selected to participate over the next three years in the Main Streets, Complete Neighborhoods, or Networked Communities Community of Practice. Each National Capacity Builder possesses an outstanding team of experts with deep experience across geographies and technical areas who will help disadvantaged and under-resourced communities achieve their unique and interrelated transportation, housing, land use, economic, and community development goals. National Capacity Builders will also manage Communities of Practice across their assigned cohorts to facilitate peer networking and knowledge sharing across communities with similar challenges and goals. National Capacity Builders received a total of $13.5 million to support communities for three years.

Learn more about the selected TCP-N Capacity Builder teams in the National Capacity Builder Fact Sheet. You can learn more about all of the communities selected to participate in the National program, including information about their partners, challenges, and goals, in the Selected Communities Fact Sheet

Of the 52 communities selected for the National program, 27% have never applied for a DOT grant, 25% have applied but have not been successful in obtaining a DOT grant, and 48% have been awarded at least one DOT grant in the past. 87% are disadvantaged, 73% have local government TCP leads, and 56% are in rural areas

Demand for FY23 Thriving Communities support was high and USDOT was unable to support all applicants. To find information about communities and Regional Capacity Builders that applied but were not selected, visit the Thriving Communities Program FY 2023 Runners Up page.

Regional Program Selections

On average, Regional Capacity Builders are sub-granting approximately 28% of their budgets to communities, representing nearly $3 million flowing to communities.Through the new Regional Pilot Program, USDOT selected six Regional Capacity Builders in Alaska, Colorado, Louisiana, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, and West Virginia who will support 60 different communities within their jurisdictions and service areas. Regional Capacity Builders will support the advancement of transportation opportunities in their disadvantaged and under-resourced communities that align with state, Tribal, or regional housing, economic development, public health, climate, and other community development goals. Regional Capacity Builders will facilitate peer learning across communities in their state, Tribe and/or region to scale program impact and act as a model for other jurisdictions. Regional Capacity Builders received a total of $10.2 million to support communities for three years.
