This session will begin with an overview of the new transportation law, MAP‐21, to heighten understanding of the new bill, programs, and opportunities for biking and walking trails. 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
  3. Introducing favorable factors for policy changes
