ISSUE

The?MAT Program is?included in the Measure M Expenditure Plan?and allocates $857 million (2015 dollars) for investment in active transportation infrastructure over 40 years. On?January 23, 2020,?the Board of Directors approved the first funding cycle for this program and authorized a project selection process.?

Staff has solicited, received, and evaluated project submittals and is recommending projects for award.? The first funding cycle includes?Fiscal?Years? (FY) 2021-2025.? Staff recommends a total of 16 project awards as described in this report, with the remaining eligible submittals (8?projects) recommended to be established on a waiting list.?

The solicitation as approved by the Board anticipated awarding a total of $75 million for this funding cycle based on cash flow estimates at that time. In light of reduced sales tax revenue, staff is recommending awards of $63.1 million, consistent with cash flow adjustments for comparable Measure M programs. The Board can approve revised Cycle 1 programming amounts in future annual updates should funding availability improve.
