CLAMP federal funding for bike/ped projects

The Clean Air and Mobility Program (CLAMP)

$2,000,000 in federal funds available for wide range of small transportation projects including bicycle and pedestrian facilities

The Boston Metro MPO has launched the Clean Air and Mobility Program in order to fund a wider variety of projects that improve air quality and mobility, and reduce congestion in the region using federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) funds. There is $2 million in funds available in federal fiscal year 2010 for CMAQ-eligible projects and programs. The deadline for proposals for funding in the Clean Air and Mobility program is April 1, 2010. There will be four public seminars to provide opportunities to discuss the program with MPO staff. MPO staff will also provide technical assistance to applicants.

Regional transit authorities, municipalities, transportation management associations, chambers of commerce, and nonprofit transportation advocacy groups in the MPO region are invited to submit proposals. All projects must have an RTA, a municipality, or a transportation agency as a fiduciary agent. Joint proposals are accepted.

There are three meetings in Feburary:

Wednesday, February 17, 9:00 AM:

TIP “How-To” Seminar Lynn City Hall, Room 302
 
Tuesday, February 23, 9:00 AM: TIP “How-To” Seminar Marlborough City Hall, Memorial Hall (3rd Floor)
