The Complete Streets Award is a new funding opportunity for local governments. The legislature provided funding in 2015 and the first awards are expected to be given in January of 2017. Awards will typically range between $250,000 and $500,000.
TIB has developed this new funding source to be different from its other grant programs. The Complete Streets Award is flexible money given to any city or county in Washington state who has an adopted complete streets ordinance and shows an ethic of planning and building streets that use context sensitive solutions to accommodate all users, including pedestrians, transit users, cyclists, and motorists.
