by / September 04, 2018

 

Californians have agreed to set aside funding for what the state terms "Disadvantaged Communities", to support projects aimed at "improving public health, quality of life and economic opportunity in California’s most burdened communities at the same time reducing pollution that causes climate change."

Read our coalition's Recommendations for Regional Disadvantaged Communities Definitions in the Active Transportation Program to learn more about how we can all work with our transportation system, its regulators, and the communities it most affects to ensure we meet our statewide goals.
