The Department of Transportation and the Federal Transit Administration are the main sources of federal transportation-related funds directed to the states.
The Departments of Housing and Urban Development and the Economic Development Agency have funding programs that can be applied to TOD.
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act focuses on existing programs and provides additional funding for programs that support TOD projects. For infrastructure, the plan announced $27 billion in funds apportioned to and administered by the states.
As of March 3rd, the states had 120 days to assign the funds to specific projects. To see a state-by-state funding allocation, visit https://www.recovery.gov/?q=content/rebuilding-infrastructure.
