Growth & Accessibility Planning Technical Assistance Program
The Growth & Accessibility Planning or GAP-TA Program serves to support Virginia localities as well as the goals of the Office of Intermodal Planning and Investment (OIPI)
GAP Program Components
This technical assistance program has four components, each component has differences in the eligible applicants, eligible activities, expected outcomes, and application evaluation criteria. Applicants may only receive one type of award per cycle.
GAP-TA Program Application
The GAP-TA application is considered an expression of interest that contains 10 to 20 questions on the following items and takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes to complete.
- Type of Agency/Jurisdiction
- Contact Info
- The focus of the technical assistance request
- The desired end output or outcomes (500 words)
- Preliminary scope outline (1000 words)
- Letter of support
- A map or shapefile of the area where the proposed work will be performed
- A map or a shapefile of the study area/corridor
The application does not have to be completed in one session as there is a “Save and Continue Later” option. Once an application is submitted, an email, with a PDF copy will be sent from firstname.lastname@example.org to the email addresses listed as the primary and secondary contact.
An entity or jurisdiction can utilize one application for submitting technical assistance requests for multiple GAP-TA Components. For example, a county can apply for Component 1 and Component 4 in the same application.
