DVRPC Awards $1.2 Million for Revitalization Projects in PA

Posted to Announcement by Ms. Elise Turner of at 3:01 PM

The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) has awarded $1.2 million to 24 municipalities in southeastern Pennsylvania through the Transportation and Community Development Initiative (TCDI) program. TCDI grants support planning for local development and redevelopment efforts.

The TCDI program targets transportation investments in a sustainable way. Federal transportation funds are used to provide grants to local governments and select non-profit organizations to create plans that link transportation improvements with land use strategies, enhance established communities, and build upon existing assets. The adoption of the TCDI set into motion the ideology of coordinating regional transportation planning with local land use planning and decision-making.
