These discussion materials are prepared as part of a general review of key policy and program considerations underlying transportation and urban economic development. Their purpose is to help EDA in sorting out its role and potential contribution in the urban transportation arena. To this end, a specific objective of this document is to identify policy, program and administrative initiatives for EDA in the urban transportation field, including ways transportation can work to enhance urban economic development. A related objective is to summarize in the process: the present and prospective assistance policies and programs of the Urban Mass Transportation Administration and the Federal Highway Administration; previously federally-funded transportation programs and projects with a bearing on urban economic development; and local transportation planning practice, evolving roles of major participants in the process, and ways economic development entities are involved at area-wide (i.e. metropolitan areas) and sub-area (e.g. central city) levels.
