Piedmont Together

Piedmont Together is a comprehensive project designed to build a resilient, prosperous economy and a better quality of life for all of North Carolina's Piedmont Triad residents.


  • The Piedmont Authority for Regional Transportation (PART) and the Piedmont Triad Regional Council (PTRC) received a $1.6 million dollar grant from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in October 2010 top begin the three-year project.
  • The first year of planning included discovering our region’s strengths and challenges while working to include the feedback of residents in Piedmont Triad communities.
  • Public engagement increased over time with civic forums, a regional summit, and an agreement with a growing list of Consortium Members.
  • Work groups formed to discuss five focus areas: Housing, Transportation, Jobs, Places and Spaces, and Healthy Communities.
