The report states that in order to accomplish quality transit-oriented development (TOD), there is a need for increased public and private funding for planning, land acquisition, infrastructure, construction and maintenance of transit-oriented development projects. In 2010, Reconnecting America conducted an inventory of such programs, the result of which is presented in this paper. The scope of this effort was not to compile all policies that support TOD, such as zoning codes, joint development policies or authorizing legislation, but to focus on ongoing, institutionalized programs that provide grants, loans, tax credits or direct financial incentives to TOD plans or projects. Because these programs are adopted and amended frequently, this compilation reflects a snapshot in time and should be used to give the reader an understanding of the types of policies that exist, not to provide an exhaustive and final list. Reconnecting America aims to use the content presented here to develop an interactive web tool that will include a broader set of policies and can be updated to ensure ongoing accuracy.
