The ATRC began offering tailored technical assistance to disadvantaged communities in ATP Cycle 4, and continues to offer this program today. Currently, this program is being provided by a team led by the Local Government Commission with Rails-to-Trails Conservancy and Fehr and Peers for the Active Transportation Program Technical Assistance (ATP DAC TA) Program for 2021 ATP Cycle 5.
The ATP DAC TA Program provides no-cost training workshops and application development to agencies with projects serving disadvantaged communities that have had limited success in receiving funding for active transportation projects. Currently, the ATP DAC TA Program offers tailored assistance for ten (10) disadvantaged communities statewide, including two tribal communities.
Example types of support for selected technical assistance recipients include, but are not limited to:
