This panel discussion will focus on innovative financing of transportation projects, particularly in the context of inclusive procurement, Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUBs), and Historically Underemployed Communities. Panelists will demonstrate how this can be accomplished.



  • Explore the feasibility and applicability of various innovative financing alternatives, and their impact on minority communities
  • Bring to light concerns and potential barriers that could hinder full participation in these projects and processes
  • Discuss avenues to begin constructing a framework for full inclusion by minority-owned underutilized business
  • Consider options for supporting the recruitment and training of a skilled inner city workforce for these projects
  • Address minority business and community economic development as they relate to innovative financing solutions
  • Have a successful conclusion to these discussions by distilling a COMTO-centric policy position and a platform for a successful launch of a COMTO/CBC strategic partnership to spearhead action for policy implementation
