Upcoming: Thriving Communities Technical Assistance Notice of Funding Opportunity


What is Thriving Communities?

In the FY22 budget, the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) received $25 million and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) received $5 million for a Thriving Communities program. The Thriving Communities program strengthens local capacity to advance and execute transformative infrastructure investments in underserved and lower-resourced communities through a coordinated approach to connect transportation and infrastructure investments funded by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law with other crucial investments like housing.

HUD and USDOT staff are working closely to meet the goal of improving the coordination of housing and transportation planning to advance residents’ access to opportunity, spur economic development, and increase housing supply.

HUD’s NOFO will provide funding to technical assistance providers and capacity building teams to help jurisdictions consider housing needs as part of their larger infrastructure investment plans, for example, identifying land that is near planned transportation projects and suitable for development. This technical assistance will enable more communities to thoughtfully plan and execute transformative infrastructure investments that boost housing supply.

For details on DOT’s funding, visit the DOT Thriving Communities Program page.

What is the timeframe for HUD’s NOFO?

The Notice of Funding Opportunity is currently under development. We anticipate its release in the Fall 2022.
