A "Complete Street" is one that provides safe, accessible options for people of all ages and abilities and all modes of travel. Designing streets with these principles contributes to the health, safety, and quality of life in a community by improving the pedestrian and vehicular environments and providing safer, more convenient travel options between the places people live, learn, work, and play.
In February 2016, MassDOT launched the Commonwealth’s first Complete Streets Funding (CSF) Program to provide technical assistance and construction funding for local infrastructure projects that support Complete Streets goals and principles. The CSF program is structured with three tiers to meet municipalities where they are in the development of their Complete Streets policies and practices.
Tier 1 – Training and Policy Development (Complete)
Cities and towns are required to demonstrate their commitment to Complete Streets principles by passing a Complete Streets policy and sending at least one representative to a Complete Streets training workshop hosted through the Baystate Roads program.
Tier 2 – Prioritization Plan Development (Complete)
Cities and towns with an approved Complete Streets policy are required to identify their Complete Streets needs and prioritize Complete Streets projects through the development of a five-year Prioritization Plan. MassDOT allows municipalities to access up to $50,000 in technical assistance to support this work.
Tier 3 – Project Construction Funding (Ongoing)
Cities and towns with an approved Prioritization Plan are eligible for construction funding up to once a year through the CFS Program. Funding is competitively awarded based on availability, program priorities, and the number of applicants.
