Planning Grant Opportunities

As funding allows, the Indianapolis MPO will offer planning grant assistance opportunities to aid Central Indiana cities, towns, and counties with local planning.

​ULI Technical Assistance Panel Program

The Indianapolis MPO is providing financial assistance to support Local Planning Agencies (LPAs) in good standing with the MPO to conduct Technical Assistance Panels with the Urban Land Institute's (ULI) Indiana District Council. The Technical Assistance Program aims to assist LPAs with addressing challenging transportation, land-use, and economic development issues. More information about how to apply, and what projects are eligible for funding can be found in the documents below.

The call for ULI Technical Assistance Panel proposals will be open from January 2-31, 2020. Questions about the call can be sent to James Rinehart.

Local Planning Studies

The Indianapolis MPO has previously provided federal planning dollars to fund local planning projects within the Metropolitan Planning Area. Funded studies were chosen via a competitive project selection process. As these plans are completed, they will be added to this website under Local Plans.

  • In 2017, the MPO approved funding for seven local planning studies.
  • In 2018, the MPO approved funding for ten local planning studies.
