Title

2023 Active Transportation Program Regional Project Prioritization Point Assignments for Orange County

 

Overview

Overview

 

On March 16, 2022, the California Transportation Commission adopted the  2023 Active Transportation Program guidelines and issued the associated statewide call for projects. This program purpose is to provide funding to eligible applicants for projects that encourage increased use of active modes of transportation such as biking and walking. The Orange County Transportation Authority has the opportunity to assign additional points to project applications to augment the application scores received through the statewide call for projects. These additional points will be considered during a second opportunity for funding as part of the regional program. The assignment of points to applications that have been submitted by Orange County entities for the 2023 Active Transportation Program funding cycle are presented for Board of Directors’ approval.
