Community Mobility Institute


WHEN: November 14-16, 2016


WHERE: Willard Arts Center in Idaho Falls, ID

Applications will be accepted until September 30th.

This is a great opportunity for technical assistance for local


New Mobility West’s Community Mobility Institute brings together local leaders

to receive in-depth training on issues at the nexus of transportation, community

planning and economic development. Communities can apply as teams of six

to eight local leaders. If accepted, these communities receive a scholarship to

attend the two and a half day training, with all lodging and most food costs

covered. Community teams will work one-on-one with expert facilitators in

transportation, land use planning, and economic development, and will leave

the training with a better understanding of how to build stronger communities

through transportation systems, and a clear path to develop an action plan of

next steps on identified issues once home.


The Community Mobility Institute is open to all towns, cities and counties in

Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming. Up to seven teams will be selected to

participate, with each team ranging from six to eight members.

Teams must demonstrate a commitment to improving transportation systems in

their community, as well as an interest in integrating these efforts with their

community and economic development goals. Because New Mobility West

aims to bring resources to underserved communities across the region,

preference will be given to projects from rural towns and medium-sized cities

and regions, up to 100,000 in population. However, strong applications from

larger communities will be considered.
