California has a tremendous opportunity to achieve climate goals and create healthy active communities by fulfilling the promise to increase funding for the Active Transportation Program (ATP). Nearly $800 million in shovel-ready walking, bicycling and Safe Routes to School projects and programs were left unfunded in ATP Cycle 1.
Sign on now in support of a larger, stronger and more effective ATP:
1. Increase the Active Transportation Program by $100 million.
2. Integrate and incentivize green infrastructure as well as access to parks and open space with active transportation projects to maximize climate and health benefits.
3. Ensure meaningful benefits to disadvantaged communities through ATP projects.
Organizations and individuals are encouraged to sign on. Deadline is March 12, 2015.
