The Transportation Council's Community and Transportation Linkage Program (the Linkage Program) provides funding for local governments to prepare community-based transportation and land use plans consistent with New Visions 2050 planning and investment principles. New Visions sets the stage for local planning decisions that support the development of a quality region with a safe, resilient, equitable and accessible transportation system. 

The Linkage Program has been recognized as a national best practice in livability planning and is the cornerstone of the Transportation Council’s public participation program. As of April 2022, the Transportation Council has funded 98 collaborative, jointly-funded studies in partnership with 43 local communities as well as not-for-profits and other public entities. Since the inception of the Linkage Program in 2000, over $7.3 million in federal, state and local funds have been committed to community planning.
