Show Me the Money! | Bringing Active Transportation Funding to Your Community

July 14, 2022, Noon to 1 p.m. CT

Online via Zoom.

Join us on Thursday, July 14 at noon for our next lunchtime webinar, Show Me the Money! | Bringing Active Transportation Funding to Your Community. Finding the right funding source for a walking or biking project is one of the biggest challenges local agencies face in improving transportation options in their communities. However, with increased federal and state transportation funding coming into our state from the national Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and the Rebuild Illinois capital plan, we have more opportunities than ever to advance active transportation projects at the local and regional level. Panelists will provide an overview of frequently used and upcoming pedestrian and bicycle funding opportunities and share tips for creating successful grant applications and navigating the funding process.'

This event is part of the five-part series titled, Taking Climate Action by Prioritizing Walking, Biking, and Transit. It is sponsored by HDR.
