This policy example outlining a new approach to federal transportation policy is a companion to the report A Blueprint for the Next Generation of Federal Place-Based Policy. The blueprint offers a two-step process for policy analysis and program design that starts with high-level, analytical questions that help provide the aspirational framework for then addressing a series of specific design decisions. By offering recommendations across key design decisions, this policy example illustrates how equity-focused, place-based federal transportation policy and grant resources could reverse adverse environmental and social outcomes, and expand mobility for the most vulnerable U.S. residents.
