    The NCDOT Integrated Mobility Division (IMD) and the Transportation Planning Division​ created an annual matching grant program – the Multimodal Planning Grant Program (MMPG) – to encourage municipalities to develop comprehensive bicycle plans and pedestrian plans.  This program was initiated in January 2004 and is currently administered through NCDOT-IMD.

    The Multimodal Planning Program has been successful in its 21 grant cycles - since 2004, 266 planning grants have been awarded. To date, a total of approximately $8.6 million has been allocated to 260 municipalities and 6 counties through this grant program.​​
