DOT Thriving Communities Program Capacity Builders

On April 7, 2023, U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg announced $21.15 million in cooperative agreements with four Capacity Builders through the first round of funding for the Department of Transportation (DOT) Thriving Communities Program. The awarded Capacity Builders will support a total of 64 communities in 42 states, including 6 Tribal Nations and Puerto Rico.

This planning, technical assistance, and capacity building support will enable disadvantaged and under-resourced communities to advance a pipeline of infrastructure projects that will increase mobility, reduce pollution, and expand affordable transportation options, connecting communities to the essential opportunities and resources that will help them thrive.
