California received a major financial boost with the recent announcement that 68 projects will be awarded a total of $115.2 million through the state's Active Transportation Program. Southern California received the majority share - approximately 63 percent - of the total funding from the program, which is administered through the California
Transportation Commission. SCAG was also among the awardees, with a $2.3 million
grant to conduct the region-wide, Southern California Active Transportation
Safety and Encouragement Campaign.
