May 17, 2017

The National Capital Region Transportation Planning Board (TPB) approved $370,000 in funding for eight projects, including one from the District of Columbia, four from Maryland, and three from Virginia, through the TPB’s Transportation/Land-use Connections (TLC) Program

The TLC Program provides consultant support to local jurisdictions as they deal with the challenges of integrating land-use and transportation planning at the community level.
