The Pedestrian and Bicycle Grant Program is a competitive grant program that provides approximately $5 million dollars every two years to Oregon cities, counties and ODOT regional and district offices for design and construction of pedestrian and bicycle facilities. Proposed facilities must be within public rights-of-way. Grants are awarded by the Oregon Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee.

’08-’09 Program Grants were awarded by the Oregon Pedestrian and Bicycle Advisory Committee in October 2006. The next grant cycle (’10-’11) will begin in Spring 2008.
 

The Oregon Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Program has $3.5 million over 2005-2009 for projects at schools, serving grades K-8.  $2.1 million in funds is available for award in 2007. The program administers funds received from the 2005 SAFETEA-LU transportation bill for Safe Routes to School programs.

Transportation Enhancement Program

The Transportation Enhancement program provides federal highway funds for projects that strengthen the cultural, aesthetic, or environmental value of our transportation system. The funds are available for twelve "transportation enhancement activities " specifically identified in the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21). These activities fall into four main groups:

Pedestrian and Bicycle Projects
Historic Preservation related to surface transportation
Landscaping and Scenic Beautification
Environmental Mitigation (highway runoff and wildlife protection only)

The intent of the program is to fund special or additional activities not normally required on a highway or transportation project. So far, Oregon has funded more than 150 projects for a total of $63 million.
