Join us on Thursday, October 4, for our quarterly CS Coalition meeting on the topic of transportation funding. Through a series of presentations and a panel discussion, you’ll leave with an overview of available funding sources (federal, state, county, local), what makes a successful grant application, the types of transportation projects most likely to receive funding, and ideas on how we can work together to advocate for more funding to support walking, biking and transit projects.
