The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) hereby requests applications for financial assistance to result in the award of one Cooperative Agreement (Agreement) to operate a national pedestrian and bicycle information center; conduct pedestrian and bicycle research, tracking, and technical assistance activities, including safe and accessible roadway design, livability, equity, ladders of opportunity, and economics; and develop resources and provide technical support activities and research related to safety behaviors (pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists) to enhance the safety of pedestrians and bicyclists on our Nation’s roadways.
