The Bicycle and Pedestrian Facilities Program
funds have been awarded for projects through fiscal year 2014. The BPFP funds projects that construct or plan for bicycle or
bicycle/pedestrian facilities. Beginning in 2008, manages BPFP in
conjunction with the Local Transportation Enhancements (TE) Program.
The TE program and the BPFP were impacted by
Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century
(MAP-21), the federal transportation act that was signed into law on
July 6, 2012. MAP-21 provisions took effect on October 1, 2012. TE
and BPFP projects generally remain eligible for funding within the
Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP), a more
comprehensive funding category. Certain categories such as bicycle and
pedestrian educational projects were altered by MAP-21.
Please see Section B of
Federal Highway Administration
guidance for a list of categories that are eligible for TAP
