As the Federal funding for surface transportation has declined or is diminished, our infrastructure assets have reached the end of their useful lives. Adding to complexity is the state and local pressure to fund emerging needs such as “Smart City” initiatives to leverage new technologies and the complete street initiative to ensure safety to all mobility modes (walk, bike, scooter, street car, automobile, etc.). The need for transportation improvements has far outpaced the available funding sources. Think about the Value Capture Special Assessment Technique!! Special Assessments can serve as gap funding for public road improvement projects. The technique can also be used to leverage federal and state grants, attract private capital, provide access to federal low interest rate loans, and can seed funding to get the project off the ground.

One of the powerful Value Capture techniques is a special assessment district and every state offers at least one type of Special Assessment funding & financing to its communities. It is a proven, effective technique for funding improvements that directly benefits property owners and enhances property values in the special assessment district.

TARGET AUDIENCE: Metropolitan and Rural Planning/Programming Organization, States, Cities, Counties, Townships, and Tribal Transportation Professionals. Anyone involved in development or administration of the Value Capture Program Elements.
