The mission of the Gaston-Cleveland-Lincoln Metropolitan Planning Organization (GCLMPO) is to plan for a system of transportation modes that are consistent with the development and growth desired for the jurisdictions that comprise the MPO. The system of roadway, transit, freight, aviation, bicycle, and pedestrian travel modes will deliver safe and efficient movement of people and goods. The GCLMPO will strive to implement mobility options that positively coexist with the natural and built environments and strengthen the economic prosperity of the region while promoting community health and wellness.
The RCP Program aims to advance and support reconnection of communities divided by transportation infrastructure – with a priority on helping disadvantaged communities improve access to daily needs (jobs, schools, healthcare, grocery stores, and recreation).
This SMART Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) will accept applications for Stage 1 Planning and Prototyping grants. During Stage 1, the SMART program seeks to fund innovation aimed at solving real-world transportation problems and focused on building data and technology capacity and experience.
