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.
