Five Mile Creek Greenbelt awarded 2023 RAISE Grant


We are thrilled to share the Trust for Public Land (TPL) and the City of Dallas have been awarded a 2023 RAISE planning grant for the design of Five Mile Creek Greenbelt!

The $6.4 million grant comes from the Rebuilding American Infrastructure with Sustainability and Equity (RAISE) grant program. With $2.2 billion available for the 2023 call for grant applications, USDOT received more than $15 billion in applications. The competitiveness of this grant program cannot be understated an this is a monumental win!

The project will fund the planning, design, and engineering for approximately 12.9-miles of multi-use paths and trails. It will complete the environmental review for approximately 7.9 miles of new trail, final engineering for approximately 1.2 miles of trail rehabilitation, preliminary and final engineering for approximately 0.3 miles of new sidewalk, and planning and conceptual design of complete streets improvements on approximately 3 miles of roadways in the Oak Cliff neighborhood.
