Metro Offers Grant to Promote Biking, Walking

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

 

Metro is offering a $2.1 million grant for projects that improve air quality and health, and promote biking and walking.

The Metro Regional Government will also fund a myriad of activities including, events that allow people to walk and bike on traffic-free streets, marketing to motivate people to use alternate travel options more often, and end-of-trip facilities for people who bike, walk or run to work. 

A portion of the grant will also be used for the installation of bike shelters and smaller awards for light infrastructure, such as bike parking. 

Applications are due to Metro by December 19, 2014. Grant awards will be announced in March, 2015, with projects starting in July 2015.

[Correction: An earlier version of this story made reference to the City of Portland, rather than Metro]
