Grants of up to $75,000 to Vermont local government entities, nonprofit organizations, school districts, and schools to build accessible and safe facilities for alternative modes of transportation. Funding is intended to improve access and safety for cyclists and/or pedestrians through the construction of infrastructure projects. This objective is in direct support of the Agency of Transportation’s Strategic Goal #3: Provide Vermonters energy-efficient travel options, specifically through the increased use of walking and biking for transportation.
Projects may be combinations of any of the following facilities:
Applications may be for the construction of new facilities, reconstruction of existing infrastructure to meet current design standards, or a combination of both. Projects that consist of a redundant facility (e.g. a sidewalk on one side of a street that already has a sidewalk) must include a good rationale for the proposed facility.
