CSS Champions Technical Assistance Program


The CSS Champions Technical Assistance Program provides resources to agencies that are championing CSS principles in projects that are at critical junctures in the project development process (PDP).

The CSS Champions program works with situations that involve:

  • Projects that can transform transportation project development culture and mindset within communities and agencies
  • Practitioners who are leading change from within
  • Models for collaboration across several levels and silos of government
  • Demonstrate a clear benefit(s) to using CSS in the project development process

This technical assistance program is made possible by the Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA) Surface Transportation Environment and Planning Cooperation Research Program (STEP).
