In July 2018, the Complete Streets Program Regulations Work Group was formed (Chapters 721 & 722, Acts of 2018).

The Work Group is to assist the Department of Transportation in first developing regulations and then reviewing the regulations for the Complete Streets Program. Within the Department of Transportation, the newly created Complete Streets Program provides competitive matching grants to encourage local road projects that create streets to accomodate users of multiple modes of transportation, not just single-occupancy motor vehicles. Safety features in the Program include: wider sidewalks; dedicated bike facilities; medians, pedestrian streetscape features; and green stormwater infrastructure, which uses best management practices to reduce the volume of stormwater runoff through infiltration, evapotranspiration, water reuse, and other ecologically sound methods.

Before a local government may apply for a matching-fund grant under the Program, it first must adopt a complete streets policy, and apply to the Department of Transportation to be designated as a certified jurisdiction.

Although the Work Group has no reporting requirement, the Department of Transportation is to report to the Senate Finance Committee and the House Environment and Transportation Committee on the implementation and effectiveness of the local match requirement by December 1, 2020 (Chapters 721 & 722, Acts of 2018).
