2-3 p.m. (CT)
3-4 p.m. (ET)

Equitable transit-oriented development (ETOD) refers to the idea that investments in and along public transportation corridors should benefit everyone in adjoining neighborhoods, regardless of their socioeconomic status. ETOD can have long-lasting and large-scale effects by improving access to quality housing, jobs, education and other pillars of healthy communities—especially for low- and moderate-income households. But how can developers and local leaders ensure that transit-oriented projects will truly benefit all?

During this Connecting Communities® webinar, national experts will explore models of communities achieving equitable growth around transit. Speakers will share the latest ETOD policy framework, summarize emerging research in the field and discuss financing ETOD projects—including how to fill funding gaps by cultivating new public-private partnerships. They’ll also highlight examples of ETOD projects that have improved residents’ connectivity to quality housing, jobs, education and health care.
