The Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) and the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) invite you to join us on Tuesday, May 16, to mark the release of the 2017 Call for Projects for the Local Technical Assistance (LTA) and Community Planning programs. Symposium attendees will learn how to build upon the successes of other organizations who have used these programs to enhance their communities’ livability, economic prosperity, and quality of life. 

Elected officials, municipal and County planners and staff, community-based organizations, nonprofits, civic organizations, and consulting firms that work with communities are welcome to attend. Panel discussions will highlight local best practices in transportation planning, climate resilience, shared services, plan implementation, and more from communities of many types and sizes. Attendees can also receive one-on-one input on the application process.

In conjunction with the RTA’s Community Planning Program, a new LTA Call for Projects will open May 5, 2017. Attending the symposium will help your community learn how to submit a competitive application to both programs.
