Turlock is striving to become a place where people of all ages and abilities are comfortable walking and bicycling to school, work, shopping, and for recreation. We seek to develop a seamless walking and bicycling network as part of an integrated, sustainable transportation system that supports a high quality of life and a vibrant community.
Active Transportation Program
This program provides federal and state grant funds to cities and counties throughout California to encourage and promote biking and walking. Funds are awarded on a fully competitive basis, so the applications that best meet the program objectives and can demonstrate active community engagement and support will be funded.
The next cycle of funding (Cycle 3) is tentatively scheduled for late March through mid-June 2016. The California Transportation Commission (CTC), which oversees the program, is expected to program a total of $230 million dollars for projects in fiscal years 2019/20 and 2020/21.

"...Turlock is the only city in the county to receive these [ATP] funds [from the statewide competitive pool]. The letters of support from citizens was key to obtaining these competitive grant funds and the city-wide input is greatly appreciated.” -Mayor Gary Soiseth
Public Outreach Process
The City is seeking input on potential projects from citizens like you and has taken a variety of steps to make providing input quick and easy.
“I believe we were successful in this grant effort due to the collaboration of our Citizens Advisory Committee, other community stakeholders as well as our consultants who all worked together to create and prioritize these important projects.”
Why should you get involved?
The application review and selection process is very competitive. Applicants must document an extensive public outreach effort, as well as show how the proposed projects have been identified as important by community members. Letters of support go a long way in helping each application receive a higher score.
Under Cycle 2 the City was awarded $1.08 million in state funds. A post-award review found that the many letters of support contributed heavily to the high scores.
