The Safe Routes Partnership is pleased to announce the third and final in the ATP Cycle 6 series of webinars focused on California’s Active Transportation Program: Changes in the ATP Guidelines, Applications and Scoring in Cycle 6.
The webinar will be held on April 20 at 2pm PST.
While the first two webinars focused on applying to create a plan and enhancing the sustainability of non-infrastructure programs, this webinar will be more factual. Aimed at agencies that have applied in previous cycles, this webinar will go over changes that Cycle 6 applicants should be on the lookout for: What questions have changed, how many points is each question worth now, and what is the updated guidance to evaluators in how to score them? How has the Quick Build pilot program been modified from its first iteration in Cycle 5? What changes in eligibility have been instituted and how have the thresholds for application types moved?
Please join Jonathan Matz, California Senior Policy Manager; Beverley Newman-Burckhard, Assistant Deputy Director, California Transportation Commission; and Elika Changizi, on Wednesday, April 20 at 2 pm.
