The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) is requesting applications for transit climate change adaptation assessment pilots. CTAI is willing to partner and help with this project!
The Federal Transit Administration (FTA) is requesting applications for transit climate change adaptation assessment pilots. The pilots will fund transit agencies or partnership with transit agencies to assess the vulnerability of transit agency assets and services to climate change hazards such as heat waves and flooding. The pilots will also assess initial adaptation strategies and link these strategies to transit agency organizational structures and activities. Four cooperative agreement awards, ranging from $50,000 to $175,000 will be awarded by FTA. Eligible recipients are either (1) a public transportation provider, or (2) a university, non-profit, private, or public entity working in partnership with a public transportation provider. Proposals are due August 25, 2011.
