Bike/Ped Planning Project Grants
The N.C. Department of Transportation is accepting proposals from communities for the 2018 Bicycle and Pedestrian Planning Grant Initiative. The program provides funding for municipalities across the state to develop comprehensive bicycle or pedestrian plans. Communities of any size may apply for the development of a corridor/area plan.
Plans funded are not for one specific project, but represent a comprehensive strategy for expanding bicycle and pedestrian opportunities within a given municipality. The plans address facilities, programs, policies and design guidelines that encourage safe walking and bicycling. Deadline: Thursday, Nov. 9 at 5 p.m. Award recipients will be notified by March 2018.
For more information, contact Nick Scheuer at (919) 707-2608 or firstname.lastname@example.org. This program is sponsored by the department’s Division of Bicycle and Pedestrian Transportation and the Transportation Planning Branch. Since 2004, approximately $5 million has been awarded through this program to 183 municipalities across the state.
