Find It Fund It: This table indicates potential eligibility for pedestrian and bicycle projects under federal highway and transit programs. In each case there are specific requirements that must be met within eligibility criteria and eligibility will be determinedon a case-by-case basis.
The Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) is a good place to start when looking for infrastructure funds to make improvements to make walking and biking easier to do. Presently its funding is in two categories: Fix-It and Enhance.

Individual proposals may relate to the roadway, bicycle/pedestrian or public transit mode, or address a combination of travel modes in a single proposal.
