(Center Identification Number: 79061-02-A)

Principal Investigator
Linda K. Cherrington

Project Scope
The scope of work includes four tasks. The four tasks in this scope of work constitute phase 1 of the envisioned research project; meaning that researchers plan for a phase 2 scope of work to test, refine, and distribute information and analysis generated by phase 1. Phase 1, funded with year 1 funds, includes Tasks 1.1 through 1.4 as those tasks are the creation, pilot application, and refinement of an outreach strategy and tools to evaluate the contribution of transit to livability in rural America. Phase 2, funded with year 2 funds, will follow the completion of phase 1 and is anticipated to include four tasks; additional case studies, several deliverables, and marketing of research findings and documents.

Phase I Tasks/ Deliverables
Task 1.1: Literature Review, Strategy and Materials, Identify Potential Case Studies

Task 1.2: IRB Human Subject Research Approval

Task 1.3: Pilot Case Study Application

Task 1.4: Refine Outreach Strategy and Materials

Project Schedule
