New Report & Webinar: Tracking Federal Funding in Your Community

By Brighid O'Keane on January 24, 2013

imageHow is my state spending its share of federal transportation funds? How much is my community investing in bicycling and walking?

These common questions can be difficult to answer.

Data on federal funding is vital to understanding the range of programs that fund bicycle projects — and let you know if your state is effectively tapping into federal dollars to make biking better in your community.

To help you navigate this complex landscape and find information for your area, Advocacy Advance has created a helpful new report — “Key Data Sources: Federal Investments in Bicycling and Walking in Your Community” — that provides a list, summary and links to 11 sources of funding data.

Adding to the report, Advocacy Advance is also hosting a webinar next week on “Tracking Data on Bicycling and Walking Investments.” Join us on Tuesday, January 29th, at 2 p.m. Eastern as we explore sources of funding outside of new Transportation Alternatives programs and explain what’s being done to track bicycle funding.

Andrea Milne, the Alliance’s new Benchmarking Project Manger, will be speaking on the call; along with Ken McLeod, Legal Specialist with Advocacy Advance and Renata Silberblatt, staff analyst with the Tri-State Transportation Campaign.
