Active Transportation Program: New Application Types for the Next Cycle

Friday, November 17, 2017

The California Transportation Commission (CTC) has begun public workshops for public feedback on guidelines and applications for Cycle 4 of the Active Transportation Program (ATP). As of this week, three have been held: in Sacramento, Chico and Los Angeles. National Partnership staff participated in the Sacramento and Los Angeles workshops, and will also participate in Tuesday’s ATP Technical Advisory Committee webinar to review the draft applications.

The National Partnership has been concerned by the lower success rate of noninfrastructure and planning projects in recent cycles, and we are very pleased that the CTC is proposing having separate application types for those two, as well as splitting infrastructure applications into three categories by size. We believe this formula will allow more under-resourced communities to be competitive this cycle. The CTC has released a discussion draft of the current guidelines, and is taking input at the scheduled workshops.
