Transportation Department Invests in Transit-Adjacent Town Planning

Selects projects that create affordable housing and walkable neighborhoods.

The Department of Transportation (DOT) recently made $10 million in competitive grants available, opening applications to local governments developing transit-adjacent communities. Priority will be given to proposals that include affordable housing options near train stations and bus terminals, encouraging applicants to create walkable areas that have improved access to jobs and services. 

“Many Americans spend almost half of their monthly budget on housing and transportation costs – so we’re taking steps to bring those costs down,” said Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. “The funding we’re announcing today will support developing affordable housing closer to public transportation — helping lower the combined cost of housing and transportation for Americans.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For wisdom for U.S. transportation officials as they award grants for transit-accessible communities.
  • For Secretary Buttigieg as he promotes the affordable housing and public transit partnership.
