The NCDOT Division of Bicycle and Pedestrian Transportation and the Transportation Planning Branch created an annual matching grant program – the Bicycle and Pedestrian Planning Grant Initiative – to encourage municipalities to develop comprehensive bicycle plans and pedestrian plans. This program was initiated in January 2004 and is currently administered through NCDOT-DBPT.
The Planning Grant Initiative has been successful in its seventeen years - since 2004, 232 planning grants have been awarded. To date, a total of approximately $7 million has been allocated to 226 municipalities and 6 counties through this grant program.
The Call for Applications is currently OPEN.
The application deadline is Wednesday, June 30, 2021.
