Advocacy Advance Action 2020 Workshop Applications Now Available
Advocacy Advance has a renewed focus for 2011: to double federal funding for biking and walking in the next three years through increased spending at the state, MPO and local level. We plan to meet this ambitious goal by awarding $125,000 in grants to organizations with campaigns aimed at maximizing transportation spending on biking and walking at the state, regional, and local levels.
In addition to grants, the Advocacy Advance team provides best practice reports, technical assistance, coaching, and Action 2020 Workshops. These trainings are designed to ensure advocates, agency staff, and elected officials have the knowledge, skills and resources to access untapped or under-utilized federal funding sources at the state, regional and local level to build bicycling and walking infrastructure and programs.
The deadline to apply for a workshop is Friday, May 27. Click here to download the application form. Advocates, agency staff, and/or elected officials are strongly encouraged to work on and submit a workshop application together. These workshops are offered for free, thanks to the generous support of SRAM.
