Federal and state funding is key to building infrastructure for walking and biking, but can be difficult to understand which opportunities are the right fit for your community. Which programs are most likely to fund active transportation projects? What resources exist to help your community overcome common barriers to accessing these funds?

Come learn about upcoming federal and state funding opportunities and how your community can identify good fits for its plans and projects to improve safe active transportation. Panelists Marisa Jones of the Safe Routes Partnership, Heidi Simon of Smart Growth America, and Caron Whitaker of the League of American Bicyclists will share insights into what your community needs to know to navigate funding opportunities.
