The Community Connectivity Program seeks to improve accommodations for bicyclists
and pedestrians in urban, suburban and rural community centers. There is high demand
to improve these areas as they not only serve as places where people can meet for
social, educational, and recreational activities, but also serve as places of employment,
transit hubs, and business districts.
The goal of the Community Connectivity Program is to make conditions safer and more
accommodating for pedestrians and bicyclists, thereby encouraging more people to use
these healthy and environmentally sustainable modes of travel. Making these improvements
will make Connecticut’s community centers more attractive places to live and work.
The Community Connectivity Grant Program (CCGP) was developed to provide funding for
targeted infrastructure improvements that are commonly identified through RSA’s, or other
transportation planning initiatives. The purpose of the CCGP is to provide funding directly to
Municipalities to perform smaller scale infrastructure improvements that are aligned with the
overall program goal. It should be noted that having completed an RSA is not a prerequisite
to receiving funding under the CCGP.
Below are program documents and helpful links to assist in applying for grants and navigating
the project administration process. The Department will evaluate the efficiency and effectiveness
of the process over time and may make modifications to the guidelines as needed. General
questions regarding the CCGP can be directed to CTDOT.CCGP@ct.gov.
