California Network Launches ATP Topic Series

Safe Routes to School National Partnership’s California Network presents the Active Transportation Program Topic Series

During the next six months the California Transportation Commission will determine overall guidelines and implement the first round of funding for the Active Transportation Program. Changes in funding programming pose a new challenge for local practitioners.

Information sharing between local governments, community groups, health advocates, and state agencies helps ensure a smooth, equitable funding program where the most needed and deserving projects rise to the top.

The ATP Speakers Series brings together key stakeholders from around California to discuss key issues and changes in this new funding program. Field experts will share expertise and best practices and all participants are encouraged to give feedback both during and outside of events.

Join public health and transportation professionals around the state for these upcoming webinars.
