Active Transportation Funding Opportunity

The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) has an open solicitation for funding that will assist communities in the implementation of streetside activation projects, which change non-travel lane parts of the street. Examples of eligible projects could include parklets, landscaping, art exhibits, outdoor seating, or bicycle parking. MnDOT will select up to two communities for this quick-build/demonstration project opportunity with a maximum of $25,000 being made available per community. The goal of this initiative is to grow interest in active transportation and to test new ideas. Cities are encouraged to apply. Applications are due at 5:00 PM on Friday, December 23, 2022.

MnDOT will host two webinars in early December to discuss application requirements in greater detail. Awards will be announced in early 2023 with work beginning in late Spring.
