Projects and policies in the  Bicycle/Pedestrian Plan can be funded by or through several options including the general fund of the local jurisdiction, Transportation Enhancement Program grants, National Recreational Trails (NRT) grant program or allocation of MPO funds.

MPO staff have also provided on-going administrative, grant application development, and technical assistance for the construction of the Chief Ladiga Trail, rails-to-trails project.
