The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT), Complete Streets Funding Program was established by legislation through the Transportation Bond Bill. It was intended to reward municipalities that show a commitment for Complete Streets integration in policy and practice.

The Massachusetts Complete Streets Portal allows municipalities to apply for funding and become eligible. A municipality must complete three Tiers in order to be eligible for Complete Streets Program Funding.

Tier 1 shows its commitment to Complete Streets principles by passing a Complete Streets ordinance, bylaw or administrative policy at its highest elected official with one public meeting. A Complete Streets Training session must be attended by one municipal employee.

A municipality in Tier 2 looks holistically at its Complete Street needs, safety and network gaps and creates a Complete Streets Prioritization Plan to align with local and regional planning efforts. A municipality is deemed eligible for Complete Streets if they meet the Tier 1 and Tier 2 requirements.

Tier 3 is where municipalities select projects from the Complete Streets Prioritization Plan to be funded. MassDOT then determines which projects will be funded, and the municipality and MassDOT sign a contract.

These processes are made easier by the Portal, which provides access to appropriate documentation templates, a way to upload documentation for review, as well as an iterative solution to document review and approval.
