NCTCOG Policy Bundle Program: The policy bundle program rewards cities, counties, ISDs, and transit agencies for adopting policies that support the Mobility 2045 plan. When policies are adopted and approved by NCTCOG through this process, Transportation Development Credits (TDCs) are awarded which can be used in place of the required local match for federal funding. Previous rounds of policy bundle awards have included polices on school siting coordination between cities/counties and ISDs. More information on the program, as well as a form to request an application after the next round opens, is available here.
Joint-Use Agreements: Joint Use Agreements are formal agreements usually between two separate government entities, such as a school and city to share public property or facilities. These agreements can save money for each entity and ensure that existing facilities and property are used to their fullest extent by the communities they serve. For more information and examples of Joint-Use Agreements, visit the Joint-Use Agreements webpage.
