This bill, authored by Assemblymember Richard Bloom, would ensure that a minimum amount of planning continued to be funded by the Active Transportation Program.
The Active Transportation Program is the state’s only program that funds bicycling and walking improvements in California. Unfortunately, many communities are ineligible to apply for those funds because they don’t have good plans in place. The ATP used to provide those planning funds, but in recent cycles planning grants have not been approved.
This bill is part of our Transportation Equity Package.
