Session Description:

Equitable transit-oriented development, or ETOD, refers to the idea that investments in and along public transportation corridors should benefit everyone in the 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?

On this webinar, join national experts to 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 the financing of 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.

Speakers:

  • Stephanie Pollack, Secretary and CEO, Massachusetts Department of Transportation (invited)
  • Brian Prater, Senior Vice President of Strategic Development and Corporate Affairs, LIIF (Low Income Investment Fund)
  • Dan Bartholomay, CEO, Rail~Volution

The session will conclude with highlights of the national Rail~Volution conference in Dallas in October, where several Federal Reserve Banks are cosponsoring an ETOD symposium with Local Initiatives Support Corporation, LIIF, Enterprise Community Partners, and Rail~Volution.
