The Regional Connections Grant Program was created in 2011 as an opportunity for Tri-County Regional Planning Commission (TCRPC) to support local planning and development efforts that help implement our regional long-range land use and transportation plans – the Regional Growth Management Plan and Regional Transportation Plan (RGMP and RTP). The program provides funding to municipalities and counties to support locally-directed, collaborative actions to improve communities, enhance community character, manage growth, maximize existing infrastructure capacity, and link land use and transportation planning decisions to create a more sustainable future for our region.
The current application can be found here.
For more info, email Associate Director Diane Myers-Krug or call (717) 234-2639.
