In September 2013 the Metro Board approved the Open Streets Competitive Grant Program framework to fund a series of regional car-free events in response to the June 2013 Board Motion 72. The approved framework includes the following:

? An annual allocation up to $2 million.
? Competitive process and program.
? Technical process to collect data and evaluate the events.

In March 2018 The Metro Board approved initiation of Cycle Three of the Open Streets Grant Program (Attachment C). Per a Director Fasana and Garcetti motion the maximum funding ceiling per event was increased to $500,000 and the funding ceiling per jurisdiction was removed. The Cycle Three recommendation includes funding for 15 new events and supplemental programmatic elements, for a total of $4 million over 2 calendar years.
