With the future direction of statewide and regional planning in question, there is no better time to hear updates from Washington and learn successful practices to enhance small metro and rural planning programs.  Also join us to celebrate RPO America’s five year anniversary serving as the national professional association for rural and small metro transportation professionals.


A special session on August 24 will provide information on TIGER grants and other federal funding opportunities from the U.S. Department of Transportation.  Through a series of workshops, peer training, and networking sessions, conference participants will hear updates on the direction of federal policy and learn information on air quality, freight and economic development, sustainable communities, regional transit, scenario planning, and other issues.  With a variety of sessions available, training appropriate for organizations new to transportation planning as well as states with a history of planning will find the content valuable.



The National Rural Transportation Peer Learning Conference is sponsored by the Appalachian Regional Commission, Development District Association of Appalachia, Environmental Protection Agency, Federal Highway Administration, Federal Transit Administration, National Association of Development Organizations and RPO America, and other planning partners.
