Application for the Growth & Accessibility Planning (GAP) Technical Assistance

Welcome to the FY23 application for the Growth and Accessibility Planning (GAP) Technical Assistance Program of the Virginia Office of Intermodal Planning and Investment (OIPI). Please visit the GAP-TA webpage for program details and eligibility.

Please submit your application by Monday, October 31st, 2022.

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

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.

The application does not have to be completed in one session as there is a “Save and Continue Later” option. You will need to enter an email address and receive a unique hyperlink to that email to use when you wish to return to the application. Once an application is submitted, an email with a PDF copy will be sent from to the email addresses listed as the primary and secondary contact.
