(KEENE) – For the eighth consecutive year, the Monadnock Alliance for Sustainable Transportation (MAST) is pleased to announce a Complete Streets Implementation Grant Program round. The application submission deadline is September 27, 2024. Complete streets are those that are safe and accessible for users of all ages and abilities, regardless of how they choose to travel.  It is a context-sensitive approach to transportation planning and design that balances the needs of people walking, bicycling, driving a car, riding public transit, and using wheelchairs or other mobility devices. “Since 2017, MAST has funded a total of 18 projects in 12 communities to improve road safety, accessibility and connectivity.  These projects – especially those construction projects retrofitting less safe designs – have built momentum and capacity at the local level. That’s a huge achievement for smaller and more rural communities” said Henry Underwood, Senior at Southwest Region Planning Commission (SWRPC).

MAST is targeting funding awards towards complete streets infrastructure-related construction activities as well as “non-infrastructure” purposes such as planning, preliminary engineering, community education and encouragement activities. Some activities under the program are limited to communities that have adopted a complete streets policy. Municipalities that have not yet adopted complete streets policy may apply for technical assistance to develop and adopt such a policy, thus becoming eligible for infrastructure funds should future grant rounds be offered.
