It will address why some communities use the full range of federal transportation funding programs for bicycling and walking instead of relying on a limited number of dedicated sources by:

  1. Describing the requirements and opportunities of funding programs underutilized for bike/ped
  2. Showcasing best practices of advocates working with public agencies to institutionalize funding priorities for biking and walking
