Cross-Fertilization of Local Technical Assistance with National Tools and Research

CTOD moves in many realms, from working with local governments, practitioners, and advocates to research partnerships with academics and from city councils to the U.S. Congress. This ability to move seamlessly back and forth among the wide range of TOD contexts and environments allows CTOD staff to see, understand, and address new ways to deploy TOD both through effective policy frameworks and effective implementation strategies. CTOD also builds the TOD field of practice through the deployment and open source sharing of tools and resources and through the direct engagement with stakeholders involved in TOD planning and implementation. By applying national tools and research - such as the TOD Database, H+T® Affordability Index, - at a local scale, CTOD is able to refine these tools to more specifically meet the needs of their users.
