Results from our survey of Byway Leaders around the US (June 13, 2014)
The Foundation recently conducted a survey of byway leaders from around the country.  Thanks to everyone who participated.  See the final report here.

Results from the State Coordinators Survey (Jan 14, 2014)
Most states reported that both the state program and byways in the state lack any type of dedicated funding source, and that project funding was perceived as a more urgent need than administration/overhead for byways. Given this, it is not surprising that most respondents also perceive that the greatest training need for their state’s byways is Fundraising/Sustainability.
