Upcoming Webinar for Rural Officials: How Does MAP-21 Affect Rural Communities?
By Mary Lauran Hall on February 12, 2013
If you advocate in a rural area, it’s likely that your public officials will need to learn new rules for how rural communities can access federal transportation funds for biking and walking projects.
Please consider inviting elected officials and municipal staff in your community to an upcoming webinar on how the new federal transportation law, MAP-21, will affect rural governments. On the webinar, local public officials will learn how rural communities can access federal bicycle and pedestrian funding from their state department of transportation, and what these funds may be used for under the new law.
Local elected officials are invited to join our partners Transportation for America on Wednesday, February 27th at 1pm Eastern for an online presentation to learn how to use MAP-21 to fund rural transportation priorities and strengthen their communities. This presentation will serve as a great supplement to materials on MAP-21 from Advocacy Advance.
Panelists for this discussion include:
Please spread the word to elected officials and municipal staff from non-metropolitan areas!
