DVRPC to Fund $2.2 Million in Local Planning Projects and Improvements through TCDI Grant Program

First-generation suburbs, older boroughs, and city neighborhoods in Greater Philadelphia will have an opportunity to improve their communities through a Transportation and Community Development Initiative (TCDI) grant.

TCDI grants assist in reversing the trends of disinvestment and decline in many of the region’s core cities and first generation suburbs. A total of $2.2 million in grants will be available, including $1.2 million for communities in Pennsylvania and $1 million for communities in New Jersey.

To be considered for a TCDI grant, all application requirements must be completed in their entirety and returned to the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) by 5:00 p.m. on September 1, 2011. Prior to submitting a completed TCDI application, applicants must attend at least one informational pre-application meeting.

Complete application information and pre-application meeting dates are available at
