Van Hollen Secures Funding for Active Transportation Infrastructure Investment Program

January 5th, 2023 by WCBC Radio

U.S. Senators Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) and Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) secured $45 million in funding for the Active Transportation Infrastructure Investment Program (ATIIP) – first authorized through the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act – in the end-of-the-year omnibus legislation. This first-time funding will support the development of walking and biking infrastructure that connects to accessible, affordable, and safe active transportation networks, allowing people to reach destinations within a community and travel between communities.


“Transportation infrastructure should connect us to all modes of transport, including walking and biking paths. These transportation networks reduce air pollution and traffic congestion as they also support healthier and more active communities. That’s why I am glad we fought successfully to promote and expand access to these active forms of transportation,” said Senator Van Hollen.
