LCATOD Eligible Grant Areas are those areas that are included in the Livable Communities’ Transit Oriented Development (TOD) program that catalyzes development around light rail transit, commuter rail, and high-frequency bus transit stations by focusing on proposals that are: - In a Transit Improvement Area (TIA) designated by the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) that includes a large portion of non-Federal land. - In TIA-eligible station areas located along light rail, commuter rail or bus rapid transitways operational by 2020. - Within 1/4 mile of any spot along high frequency local bus lines. - Within 1/2 mile of bus stops on high-frequency express routes with significant passenger infrastructure. TOD allows applicants to request resources from the following sources in one application: - Tax Base Revitalization Account (TBRA) Contamination Cleanup Site Investigation TOD grants - helps applicants (1) determine the scope/severity of suspected contamination and (2) develop a clean up plan for environmental remediation of a site they have or will purchase. - TBRA Contamination Cleanup TOD grants - helps applicants who have recently completed their site investigation implement their cleanup plan and begin redeveloping their site. - Livable Communities Demonstration Account (LCDA) Pre-Development TOD grants - helps applicants define their projects by funding activities such as design workshops, redevelopment preparation, corridor or station area planning, development of zoning and land use tools, and strategizing for land banking and acquisition. - LCDA Development TOD grants - help applicants acquire or prepare sites, begin (re)development, and/or build infrastructure
