If there is federal land located near you, your community is eligible to apply to a new federal transportation funding program called the Federal Lands Access Program, whimsically known as FLAP.
Bicycle and walking trails and other facilities are eligible under the MAP-21, the federal transportation bill. The goal of the FLAP program is to improve transportation facilities (i.e. public highway, road, bridge, trail, or transit system) that are located on, adjacent to, or provides access to federal lands. FLAP provides $250 million by formula to all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
If you’d like you know more, join us for an Advocacy Advance webinar on Thursday, June 13, 200-3:00 p.m. EDT.
You can register here for free. See our FLAP advocacy guide and state-by-state information, and a write-up on these resources at Outdoor Magazine.
