Learn More About Value Capture Opportunities in FHWA Webinar Series

Published on: April 21, 2023


The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has launched a new webinar series about value capture strategies for infrastructure projects, including transit stations and corridor improvements. The webinars, which run through 2023 with the next on April 26, focus on innovative financing mechanisms for project delivery and highlight best practices collected from across the nation.

Value capture encompasses a set of techniques that can recover a portion of land value created by public infrastructure investments. Successful value capture:

  • addresses funding gaps
  • leverages and optimizes federal and state resources
  • accelerates project delivery
  • meets and improves system performance goals
  • maintains transportation infrastructure assets in good repair
  • saves time and money

The webinar on April 26 will provide information for state and local authorities thinking about implementing transportation reinvestment zones (TRZs) and Housing and Transit Reinvestment Zones (HTRZs). TRZs and HTRZs can generate funding for transportation projects by capturing and leveraging the economic growth associated with transportation infrastructure investments. Participants will have an opportunity to interact with a panel of experts who have successfully used value capture with innovative finance and project delivery techniques to advance new and modernized infrastructure projects.

Registration is free, but space is limited. Certificates of completion and confirmations of attendance are available.
