States across the country are facing the same challenges. Revenues are falling and budgets are shrinking. Yet state transportation officials have ambitious goals: improve safety, enhance economic opportunity, improve reliability, preserve system assets, accelerate project delivery, and help to create healthier, more livable neighborhoods, just to name a few.

Smart Growth America works in partnership with Governors, DOT CEOs, and other transportation providers and stakeholders to advance these goals through innovative transportation initiatives with states that grow economies and maximize the return on transportation investments. These projects are designed to put good policies in place on the ground, provide models for other states and inform the federal transportation discussion.
