Through our program the National Institute for Transportation and Communities (NITC), we've kickstarted the latest round of our Pooled Fund Grant 2018 (Problem Statements due May 15, 2018) – an opportunity for agencies and other partners to join forces in addressing a pressing transportation issue.

One champion identifies a problem that is common to other agencies, cities, or MPOs and then recruits other partners who are willing to collaborate and contribute financially to the project.
