The Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) late yesterday released the staff recommendations for the 2014 Regional Competitive Active Transportation Program (ATP).
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.
MTC received 127 applications requesting over $200 million. MTC staff is recommending funding 10 projects totaling $30.7 million. The staff recommendations and staff report are available here.
The MTC Programming and Allocations Committee will review the recommendations at its September 10, 2014 meeting. The full Commission is set to consider the 2014 ATP at its meeting on September 24, 2014. The California Transportation Commission will consider adopting the Regional portion of ATP on November 12.
