  4. Introductions • Name • Organization / Agency • Position • What brought you here today?

  5. Workshop Goals • Identify sources of funding for bicycle and pedestrian projects • Learn about funding sources for non-infrastructure projects • Learn examples from other places • Make biking and walking a priority in our community • Demonstrate public interest and support for bike/pedimprovements • Develop action items to improve walking and bicycling conditions in the region • Establish and improve local, state, and regional relationships

  6. Working Together

  7. Programs Characteristics, requirements, and opportunities of under-utilized funding sources that exist for biking and walking projects and programs

  8. Outline Program features • Bike/ped eligibility • Project examples • Case study Think about • Federal vs. state and regional policy • Programming decisions • Who, What, Where, When, How • Resources in folder

  9. Federal-Aid Highway Programs • Surface Transportation Program (STP) • Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) • Section 402 Safety Grants • Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement (CMAQ) • Transportation Enhancements • Safe Routes to Schools • Recreational Trails

  10. Federal-Aid Bike/PedSpending 1992-2010

  11. Trending in the Right Direction

  12. Growth in Bicycle Commuting

  13. Federal-Aid Highway Programs • Surface Transportation Program (STP) • Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) • Section 402 Safety Grants • Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement (CMAQ) • Transportation Enhancements • Safe Routes to Schools • Recreational Trails

  14. Surface Transportation Program (STP) • Flexible funding • Construction of bicycle transportation facilities and walkways • Non-construction projects related to safe bicycle use • 80% Federal Share

  15. STP Example: Peoria Project Rating Criteria • Before 2006, project selection was not quantified • MPO asked League of Illinois Bicyclists for suggestions • Peoria MPO created new quantitative criteria • Most projects now include bike/ped accommodations

  16. Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) • Safety infrastructure • All public roads are eligible • Bike lanes, roadway shoulders, crosswalks, signage • Data driven • 90% Federal Share

  17. HSIP Examples: Virginia and Florida • Virginia: • “Fair share for safety” • 10% set-aside • Project selection focused on corridors • Florida: • High bicycle fatalities • $5 million in 2009 • $5.5 million in 2010

  18. Section 402 State and Community Highway Safety Grant Program • NHTSA & FHWA • Non-infrastructure • Bicycle and pedestrian safety and education programs • Run by local advocacy groups

  19. Section 402 Examples • Share the Road program (Atlanta) • BikeSchool (New Jersey) • Helmet distribution (Florida) • Pedestrian safety for older adults • Training on ped/bike design guidelines • “Bike Safety Month”

  20. Section 402 Example: Bike Walk CT • CRCOG received $20,000 grant for bike education program • Created Bike Walk CT • Close agency and advocacy relationship in development of bike education program

  21. Congestion Mitigation & Air Quality Improvement Program (CMAQ) • Emission-reductions • Must be non-attainment area for eligibility • Construction and non-construction projects and programs eligible • Typically 80% federal share

  22. CMAQ Examples • Capital Bikeshare (Washington, DC & Arlington, VA) • Millennium Park Cycling Center (Chicago, IL) • Bike racks (Sacramento, CA)

  23. CMAQ Examples: Non-Construction • Bike education (Louisville, KY) • Bike promotion (Washington, DC) • City employee bike fleet (Chicago, IL) • Bike map (Milwaukee, WI &Sacramento, CA) • Bike plan (Philadelphia, PA &Birmingham, AL)

  24. Dedicated Funding Programs • Transportation Enhancements • Safe Routes to School • Recreational Trails
