Eligible project types
  • Pedestrian/bicyclist safety and/or mobility infrastructure improvements (may include project engineering).
  • Design-only projects that will result in a ready to construct pedestrian or bicycle improvement project.
  • Infrastructure improvements within two miles of a school serving children kindergarten to 12th grade that will improve safety and/or increase the number of children walking and biking to school.
