WEBINAR – Take Advantage of Dedicated Active Transportation Connectivity FundingDownload

This winter, the Federal Highway Administration will open the first ever application period for the new Active Transportation Infrastructure Investment Program (ATIIP). Now is the time to begin preparing applications. Ahead of the official funding announcement, join Rails-to-Trails Conservancy (RTC) to learn more about applying for the new program dedicated solely to the development of connected walking and biking routes within and between communities. During this webinar, you will learn tips from RTC and partners for taking advantage of this opportunity and perspectives on the importance of having a dedicated funding source for connected trail and active transportation networks.

This initial funding round is an excellent opportunity to secure a grant to plan your system, supplement your infrastructure gap-filling strategy or make key connections to neighboring communities. Even unsuccessful applicants may gain advantages for future rounds and strong demand for ATIIP will help to grow the program. RTC is working to increase ATIIP from the $45 million available in this initial cycle to annual funding of $200 million as approved by Congress in 2021.
