  • 5% of funds in the statewide competitive program and the rural and small urban program will be made available for active transportation plans in disadvantaged communities.
  • Minimum request of $250,000 for infrastructure projects, excluding safe routes to schools projects and recreational trails projects.
  • Median household income criteria for disadvantaged criteria to be based on census tract level.
  • Role of Safe Routes to School Technical Assistance Resource Center to be expanded for all ATP non-infrastructure projects.
