$9 million windfall, thanks to project delivery efforts

We received some great news! Thanks to regional efforts to maximize every federal transportation dollar and meet our project delivery targets, the region will receive an additional $9 million that can be put to work next year.

Meeting project delivery targets not only keeps transportation projects moving, it also makes the region eligible for additional federal funds from places that are unable to deliver on all of their funds.

 

REDI funding for housing in Tacoma

A housing development funded with the Regional Equitable Development Initiative Fund is in the works at James Center North near Tacoma Community College and the future terminus of Tacoma Link.  The idea for the REDI Fund emerged out of PSRC’s Growing Transit Communities Partnership. The fund helps finance the acquisition of property along transit corridors to preserve affordability. In the first three years, REDI has provided four loans totaling nearly $12 million for projects across the region.

 

Getting ready for the 2020 Census

The Census matters a lot to jurisdictions in the region.  Census data is used to distribute over $800 billion in federal funds to states, counties and cities nationwide. As a State Data Center for the Census Bureau, PSRC provides tailored data to meet the needs of members and others. The census pages on PSRC’s website have data on every jurisdiction in the region. Stay tuned for more census-related stories as we approach Census Day on April 1, 2020.

 

 

Looking for input from Snohomish County commuters

Sound Transit bus at Mountlake Terrace

Do you ride the bus from Snohomish County to the University of Washington or downtown Seattle?  With Northgate Link set to open in 2021, Community Transit and Sound Transit are considering rerouting some bus routes to Northgate, where riders could transfer to Link light rail. To learn more and provide your feedback, visit Northgate.participate.online and take the survey by December 31, 2019.

I welcome your feedback on our work at PSRC. You can reach me at jbrown@psrc.org.
