Reconnecting America People * Places * Possibility

Using the Housing and Transportation (H+T) Affordability Index for Performance Metrics

The presentation/slides begin after the introduction at minute 2:30.


This is the first of two sessions offered by the Center for Neighborhood Technology as part of Transportation for America's technical assistance program. In this session, CNT trained MAP-21 subgrantees on the most effective use of the H+T Index in their advocacy for better planning at the metropolitan planning organization (MPO) and state levels. The session focused on:

  • How to use the "State of the Region" Fact Sheets produced by CNT, including accurate interpretation of the data and metrics.
  • How to talk about the H+T Index with MPO staff and other stakeholders
  • How coalition members might frame the data and metrics for their region and with their MPO

This training session was conducted Aug. 26 in Detroit at Wayne State University and broadcast to other subgrantees via webinar.
