The NCDOT Bicycle and Pedestrian Planning Grant Initiative allows municipalities across the state the opportunity to develop comprehensive bicycle and pedestrian plans. The program is intended to reach and benefit a broad spectrum across the state, including municipalities with varied populations, race, and median income.
Each year $400,000 is available to award 12 to 18 Bicycle or Pedestrian Planning Grants. Federal planning funds (SPR - State Planning and Research) administered by the Transportation Planning Branch are combined with recurring state funds provided by the NC General Assembly. A local match is required ranging from 20% to 50%, depending on the population of the town or city receiving a grant. Pedestrian plans range in cost from $25,000 to $95,000, while bicycle plans range in cost from $25,000 to $190,000.
The deadline for submission of applications is December 5, 2012, at 5:00 p.m.
