The RTA and CMAP are issuing a joint Call for Projects for the RTA’s Community Planning program and CMAP’s Local Technical Assistance (LTA) Program.  Applicants can apply for both programs by using one application.  The RTA and CMAP will each select projects that align with the GO TO 2040 Plan and the Regional Transit Strategic Plan.  Selected projects will receive staff and / or consulting assistance for planning and implementation projects.   New this year, the Cook County Department of Public Health’s (CCDPH) Healthy HotSpot initiative is requesting applications to conduct local  active transportation (pedestrian and bicycle) plans in suburban Cook County.
