The Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) announced three Bay Area workshops to provide guidance on applying for the Regional Competitive Active Transportation Program (ATP) Cycle 2.
Forty percent of the state ATP funding is being awarded by Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) in urban areas with populations more than 200,000. At least 25% required to benefit disadvantaged communities. MTC’s share of the ATP funding for 2014 was about $30 million.
Topics for the workshops will include:
- Statewide vs. Regional Program Guidelines
- Timeline, scoring criteria, and application overview
- Best practices on gathering data and lessons learned from Cycle 1
- On-site discussion and Q&A with MTC and Caltrans staff
These sessions are open to anyone but will be tailored to new applicants, applicants seeking assistance in preparing a competitive application, and agencies or organizations interested in partnering on an application.
