Transtech is currently preparing applications for a number of Cities in Southern California for Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s(MTA) 2009 Call for Projects. Project types include:
- Regional Surface Transportation Improvements
- Signal Synchronization & Bus Speed Improvements
- Transportation Demand Management
- Bikeway Improvements
- Pedestrian Improvements
- Transit Capital
- Transportation Enhancement Activities
The Call for Projects application process is competitive whereby local agencies in Los Angeles County who provide transportation infrastructure may submit grant applications for transportation funding. By federal and state statutes, the MTA is required to prepare a Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) for Los Angeles County. They then use the Call for Projects process to program discretionary local, state, and federal revenues to local jurisdictions to implement regionally significant transportation projects. The Call for Projects is the process that MTA uses to solicit, rank, and fund regional transportation projects requested by local jurisdictions.
Transtech has successfully prepared funding applications which consistently ranked in the top 10 of the approved projects list. In the most recent MTA Call for Projects (2007), Transtech obtained over $29 million approved budget for our client’s projects including the Cities of Alhambra, Arcadia, Commerce, Inglewood, Lawndale, Pomona, and others. Transtech also assisted several cities in obtaining more than $19 million in federal appropriations and earmarks.
Transtech’s grant writing services are enhanced by integration with engineering services to facilitate an integrated project design. In the past few years, Transtech has facilitated over $100 million in funds for our clients’ public works projects and transportation improvements. This expedites project start-up and completion, and ensures compliance with funding requirements.
