Last week, Advocacy Advance – a partnership between the Alliance for Biking & Walking and the League of American Bicyclists – announced the start of its 2011 grant cycle. This year, a total of $125,000 in awards will go towards organizations with campaigns aimed at maximizing transportation spending on biking and walking at the state, regional, and local levels. Learn more about our three types of grants at www.AdvocacyAdvance.org.
Join us this afternoon, March 29th at 3 p.m. EST, for a question-and-answer session for prospective applicants of the Model Grants. Model Grants provide multi-year support to state and local advocacy organizations with efforts to significantly increase federal investment at state, regional, and/or local levels for biking and walking infrastructure and programs. Click here for a detailed outline, including guidelines, criteria and other requirements.
Contact Brighid at Brighid@AvocacyAdvance.org for the conference call number and access code. A second question-and-answer call about Capacity Building Grants will be held on April 7th. Stay tuned for the details.
