Historically overburdened and underserved communities in urban and rural areas benefit from access to a generational investment in the nation’s infrastructure through direct, hands-on technical support for transportation projects with local impact.

Highlighted Action

USDOT will provide direct, hands-on technical support with local impact—providing targeted assistance in areas of planning, project development, grant applications, and project delivery to ensure that transportation investments and benefits support underserved and overburdened communities by establishing a new national technical assistance center.

Key Performance Indicator

  • Increase in the number of USDOT discretionary grant applicants from disadvantaged communities in urban and rural areas who have never applied for USDOT funding before.
  • Increase in the number of new projects in disadvantaged communities utilizing formula funds added to Statewide Transportation Improvement Programs (STIPs) and Transportation Improvement Programs (TIPs).
