WEBINAR – Connectivity Funding: Learn How to Strategically Apply for Active Transportation Funding

By: Rails-to-Trails-Conservancy WEBINAR
March 25, 2024

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) recently opened applications for the Active Transportation Infrastructure Investment Program (ATIIP). Join Rails-to-Trails Conservancy (RTC) to learn how to strategically apply 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 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. 

You can find a full list of ATIIP-eligible projects in the “Pedestrian and Bicycle Funding Opportunities: U.S. Department of Transportation Highway, Transit, and Safety Funds” funding matrix
