HUMAN SERVICES TRANSPORTATION PLANNING
Online Open House
WHAT IS HUMAN SERVICES TRANSPORTATION PLANNING?
The Skagit Council of Governments (SCOG) is in the process of developing a Coordinated Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Plan (CPT-HSTP). The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) requires Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) / Regional Transportation Planning Organizations (RTPOs) to develop CPT-HSTPs every four years. SCOG, as the state-designated Regional Transportation Planning Organization for the Skagit region, coordinates stakeholders and partners in identifying and prioritizing transportation improvement projects for funding consideration. The HSTP helps regions to identify transportation needs and develop solutions to improve access for seniors, youth, people with disabilities, people with lower incomes, limited English speakers, and those without access to a private vehicle.
Successful development of these plans enables Skagit County to apply for WSDOT’s Consolidated Grant Program to receive both federal and state funding to finance strategies outlined within the CPT-HSTP. These plans are developed working with stakeholders, service providers and community members just like you!
