New Report & Webinar: Tracking Federal Funding in Your Community
How is my state spending its share of federal transportation funds? How much is my community investing in bicycling and walking?
These common questions can be difficult to answer.
Data on federal funding is vital to understanding the range of programs that fund bicycle projects -- and let you know if your state is effectively tapping into federal dollars to make biking better in your community.
To help you navigate this complex landscape and find information for your area, Advocacy Advance has created a helpful new report — "Key Data Sources: Federal Investments in Bicycling and Walking in Your Community" — that provides a list, summary and links to 11 sources of funding data.
Adding to the report, Advocacy Advance is also hosting a webinar next week on "Tracking Data on Bicycling and Walking Investments." Join us on Tuesday, January 29th, at 2 p.m. Eastern as we explore sources of funding outside of new Transportation Alternatives programs and explain what's being done to track bicycle funding. Panelists will include:
- Ken McLeod, Legal Specialist, Advocacy Advance
- Andrea Milne, Benchmarking Project Manager, Alliance for Biking & Walking
- Renata Silberblatt, staff analyst, Tri-State Transportation Campaign
