Guidance and Support

The Thriving Communities Initiative provides technical assistance and capacity building resources. A new online portal, the DOT Navigator, helps communities understand the best ways to apply for grants, and to plan for and deliver transformative infrastructure projects and services. One of the key features is a mapping tool for identifying transportation disadvantaged census tracts. In addition, the USDOT is partnering with the Department of Housing and Urban Development to improve the coordination of housing and transportation planning to advance residents’ access to opportunity and increase housing supply.
