Active Transportation Program
The Active Transportation Program encourages participation of the CCC and Local Conservation Corps
In 2013, Governor Brown combined elements of federal highway legislation (MAP21) and state transportation-related funding to create the Active Transportation Program (ATP). SB 99, the implementing legislation, encouraged partnerships with conservation corps programs on ATP projects by including them as one of the project selection criteria. Corps programs increase the public benefit of these projects by creating workforce development opportunities for young adults. Projects will be scored based on their partnership with the California Conservation Corps, a state department under the Natural Resources Agency, and/or a certified local conservation corps which operates as independent nonprofit organization.
What can CCC crews do on an ATP project?
The CCC provides supervised crews of 10-15 young adults trained and equipped to work safely on a wide variety of projects including:

What are the benefits of partnering with the CCC?
Seeking a partnership with a corps ensures compliance with SB 99 and ATP program guidelines.
Transportation projects become pathways for young adults to successfully enter the workforce.
Conservation corps members are hard workers, enthusiastic, and eager to be learning and working.
Some conservation corps are located in disadvantaged communities and increase public benefit.
