Grants to North Carolina municipalities and eligible counties for the development of healthy mobility options and solutions. Funding is intended to support consultant fees, mapping services, and other costs associated with the creation of statewide comprehensive bicycle plans and pedestrian plans. Eligible plans are developed by consultants that are prequalified by NCDOT. The selected awardees commonly incorporate a diverse mix of municipalities from large cities to small towns.
In addition to the traditional bike and pedestrian plans, DBPT offers an application process for project acceleration plans. Eligible for municipalities with a population of 5,000 or less, these abbreviated plans will primarily focus on priority project identification and project implementation. Municipalities (and counties with fewer than 50,000 residents) that currently have bicycle plans and/or pedestrian plans, either through this grant program or otherwise, may also apply to update their plan provided if it is at least five years old.
Allowable expenses include consultant costs associated with plan development and delivery; GIS/mapping services, as appropriate; preparation of technical illustrations and graphic design/layout of a plan undertaken by the consultant; non-staff costs associated with data collection and public involvement activities; and, printing/copying of plan and maps.
