Municipalities Encouraged to Apply for Complete Streets Program

We’re accepting applications for our Complete Streets Technical Assistance Program. This competitive program will work with six to eight municipalities to develop solutions for improving walking, biking, safety and addressing other needs.

Examples of projects include developing bicycle corridor or network plans; conducting walking audits to identify potential pedestrian and bicycle improvements; creating conceptual renderings to visualize potential improvements; crafting policy guidance; and engaging in temporary demonstration projects.

Complete streets are streets designed for all users, all modes of transportation and all ability levels. They balance the needs of drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders, emergency responders and goods movement based on local context. 

This program is funded by the NJTPA and offered in partnership with Sustainable Jersey and the Voorhees Transportation Center at Rutgers University, who provide the technical assistance. No direct funding to municipalities is provided.

Municipalities in our 13-county region (Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Monmouth, Morris, Ocean, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex, Union and Warren counties) are eligible to apply.  Applications are due February 11.

Two webinars are being held to help interested municipalities with the application process. The first webinar on December 9 will focus on eligible project types and provide examples of projects completed through this program. Click here to register.

The second webinar on December 15 will focus on the application process and how to use the online application portal. Click here to register.
