These day-long workshops 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.

Action2020 workshop attendees will:

  • Learn about the full range of funding sources that exist for biking and walking projects and programs
  • Learn the key characteristics, requirements, and opportunities of those sources
  • Understand the funding process and the important role of advocates, agency staff, and elected officials in securing this funding
  • Share best practices, tricks and tips from experts in the field as co-presenters

With the help of the Advocacy Advance team and advisors, attendees will leave the training with an action plan with short- and long-term goals and clear measurable next-steps in their campaigns to tap into federal funding sources as your state/local level. To ensure campaigns are successful, they will have access to Advocacy Advance resources and receive follow-up support and guidance.

These workshops are offered for free, thanks to the generous support of SRAM.
