It’s not too late! Join us today (Wednesday, February 27th) at 1pm EST for an online presentation to learn how to use MAP-21 to fund rural transportation priorities and strengthen your community. Click here to register.
Investing in a variety of transportation options — like public transportation, vanpooling, bicycling, walking and safe roads and bridges — are crucial for stronger, more resilient communities in our rural cities, towns and communities. It’s important to know how the new federal transportation law (MAP-21) changed the way communities will access transportation dollars and what these funds may be used for.
Elected officials and municipal staff from non-metropolitan areas are encouraged to join this online presentation. This presentation is free and open to the public; feel free to pass this invitation on to others in your network.
Our panelists for this discussion include:
Commissioner Kathy Rinaldi, Teton County, Idaho
Charles W. Fluharty, President and CEO, Rural Policy Research Institute
Chris Zeilinger, Director of Policy Development, Community Transportation Association of America
Georgia Gann, Deputy Director of Government Affairs, Transportation for America
John Robert Smith, President and CEO, Reconnecting America and Former Mayor of Meridian, MS (moderator)
