Transit Oriented Development (TOD) Grants
Focus on increasing transit use
The Council’s TOD grants (LCA-TOD) promote moderate to high density development projects located within walking distance of a major transit stop that typically include a mix of uses such as housing, jobs, restaurants, shops, and entertainment.
Projects are eligible if they are located within a LCA-TOD-Eligible Area within one-half mile of LRT, BRT, commuter rail, or high-frequency express bus stations that are currently operational or will be operational by 2020. Projects within one-quarter mile of high frequency local bus routes are also eligible. Applicants seeking funding for projects outside of LCA-TOD-Eligible Areas should consider the LCDA or TBRA regular programs.
LCA-TOD grants allow applicants to apply for funding from the Livable Communities Demonstration Account (LCDA - read more here) and Tax Base Revitalization Account (TBRA - read more here) in the same application, which helps to reduce uncertainty and expedite TOD projects. In 2015, applications for TBRA-TOD will be accepted only with concurrent LCDA-TOD applications and awards.
2014 applications were due July 1st and are expected to be awarded this fall.
