Overview: This resolution supports the effort for grant application for the FY22 Transportation Demand Management grant. The Transportation Management Plan (TMP) program supports the Town's broader transportation goals to expand mobility, reduce congestion, increase housing affordability and promote sustainability through alternative modes of transportation. The TMP provides information and incentives to local employers encouraging use of public transit, bicycling and walking. The Town conducts a survey every two years on commuter travel behavior and demographics to inform future efforts and policy decisions.


Recommendation(s):
That the Council adopt the resolution supporting an application to Triangle J Council of Governments for the FY22 TDM grant.

Decision Points:
* The TDM work focuses on reducing traffic congestion, decreasing Chapel Hill's carbon footprint, improving air quality, increasing quality of living, increasing transit ridership and offering a healthier community consistent with the community vision of Chapel Hill 2020 and the Town Mission of building a community where people thrive.
* Participation in the TDM regional program supports the Town's role in regional transportation.
* The TDM Grant 50% match comes from the Active Living by Design Town funding.
* Funding application for FY22 will be determined once the grant guidelines have been determined.
* Current grant amount for FY21 is $101,933 ($5,500 is for Carrboro as a subrecipient) with 50% equaling $50,966.50 from Town and 50% matched by TDM Grant from TJ COG.
* Grant amounts will not exceed FY21 amount unless there is increase to salary and benefits.
