FUNDING ALERT FOR MEMBERS IN THE U.S.

By September 30:

If your state has unspent (aka “orphaned”) funds that were originally earmarked before Sept. 30, 2005 for specific projects, then pay close attention to FHWA’s guidance about repurposing those funds.

Approximately $2 billion is at stake!

Visit the FHWA website to see if your state has funds available.

Several of APBP’s allied groups are working with their members and followers to make sure these funds go to bicycle and pedestrian projects.

Deadline is September 30!
