NOACA’s Transportation for Livable Communities Initiative (TLCI) provides assistance to communities and public agencies for integrated transportation and land use planning and projects that strengthen community livability. TLCI advances the goals of NOACA’s Regional Strategic Plan by:

  • Developing transportation projects that provide more travel options
  • Promoting reinvestment in underutilized or vacant/abandoned properties
  • Supporting economic development
  • Ensuring that the benefits of growth and change are available to all members of a community
  • Enhancing regional cohesion
  • Providing people with safe and reliable transportation choices
