Project applications sought for transportation demand management projects

DRCOG is now accepting applications for the Regional Transportation Demand Management (TDM) set-aside of the 2018–2021 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) for fiscal years 2018 and 2019. The TDM set-aside, identified in the 2018–2021 TIP, supports infrastructure and activities that support TDM strategies to reduce single-occupant vehicle travel and ultimately improve regional air quality and reduce traffic congestion. This call for projects focuses on small infrastructure projects and non-infrastructure activities that meet these objectives. Applications are due Dec. 15.

Colorado to increase funding for aging services

Gov. John Hickenlooper has announced  an additional $4 million in funding for aging services in Colorado as part of the proposed budget. As the federally designated Area Agency on Aging for eight metro Denver counties, DRCOG expects to receive roughly 40 percent of these funds in order to provide services to older adults and people with disabilities, including meals and nutrition, transportation, and caregiver services. Once available, the funding will have an immediate positive effect on the region’s older adults by addressing extensive waiting lists and delivering essential services.
