Active Transportation Program

The Active Transportation Program (ATP) encourages increased use of active modes of transportation, such as biking and walking. This program is consistent with AMMA’s dedication to improve mobility for all individuals, ensure access for disadvantaged communities, and enhance public health.

AMMA’s team of grant writers has a proven track record of developing successful ATP grant applications by demonstrating the project’s benefits through developing compelling narrative and thorough data analysis. For ATP Cycle 2, AMMA prepared nine applications on behalf of Los Angeles Metro and nine sponsor entities. Five of AMMA’s nine ATP applications were successful and will be receiving Federal and State ATP funds, for a success rate of over 55%, compared to a 14% selection rate for the overall statewide application pool.Developing these ATP applications includes:

  • Mastering evolving Caltrans scoring criteria, new application forms and application guidelines
  • Working with street and road design, bicycle improvements and pedestrian enhancements to accurately describe and communicate each proposals’ strengths and to create the best competitive package possible
  • Supporting public engagement activities that help to ensure a strong application
  • Communicating the safety impacts of pedestrian and bicycle improvements
  • Capturing the regional benefit and accurately estimating demand in completing missing links of bikeway
  • Collecting and inputing data for Cost/Benefit Model
  • Coordinating with public health entities to identify benefits and secure health department support

AMMA can assist by:

  • Grant writing and grant assistance
  • Community outreach
  • Technical assistance and training
