Through North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority’s (NJTPA) Complete Streets Technical Assistance Program, Sustainable Jersey is collaborating with the Alan M. Voorhees Transportation Center (VTC) at Rutgers University to offer free technical assistance services to municipalities for a specific project related to advancing a complete streets initiative in their communities. The program is made possible through NJTPA’s federal funding from the U.S. Department of Transportation. Applications for the 2022 Complete Streets Technical Assistance Program are available beginning December 6, 2021.
In addition, two free webinars will assist municipalities in identifying projects and applying for technical assistance to support their needs. The project types webinar on December 9, 2021 will focus on describing case studies and how other New Jersey municipalities used the program to address their local issues. The application process webinar on December 15, 2021 will focus on describing the technical assistance program and how you can apply. Applications must be received by February 11, 2022.
Complete streets are 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.
