NADO-USDA Technical Assistance Project - Southwest Colorado
Started: November, 2017 End Date: September, 2018 Project ID #4W6987 Status: Ongoing
The objective of this project is to assist the Southwest Colorado Council of Governments with the development of fixed route system between Cortez and Durango.
WTI will provide technical assistance to three rural communities and regions to identify and evaluate options for expanding transportation options, through a new partnership with the National Association of Development Organizations (NADO)'s Research Foundation and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). USDA sponsors technical assistance grants to rural communities and regions for transportation development, and NADO's Research Foundation, working in conjunction with WTI, was selected to receive three grants. WTI will conduct the technical assistance for three locations, one of which is in Southwest Colorado. In Southwest Colorado, WTI will assist the Southwest Colorado Council of Governments with the development of fixed route system between Cortez and Durango. The project will include the identification of funding options, and development of a sustainability plan.
