You’re Invited: Sustainable Transportation Planning Grant Workshop

Caltrans invites you to participate in the FY16/17 Sustainable Transportation Planning Grant Workshop, to be held August 27, 2015, from 10 a.m. to noon at the Southern California Association of Governments (818 West Seventh Street 12th Floor Los Angeles).
These grants are intended to support the multi-modal transportation system of the future and improve accessibility for all people.

The FY 16/17 combined grant amount available statewide is $9.8 million, and all funding for these grant programs are available on a competitive basis. There are two kinds of grants:

Strategic Partnerships Grants: Encourage regional agencies to partner with Caltrans to identify and address statewide/interregional transportation deficiencies in the state highway system, strengthen government-to-government coordination, and result in programmed system improvements that achieve the State’s overarching goals. Interested sub-recipients may also partner with their regional agencies for this grant.

Sustainable Communities Grants: Funds transportation planning to identify and address mobility deficiencies in the multi-modal transportation system, encourage stakeholder collaboration, involve active public engagement, integrate Smart Mobility 2010 concepts, and ultimately result in programmed system improvements, and achieve the Caltrans Mission and overarching objectives.

All interested applicants should plan to attend the workshop to learn about the application process and eligibility requirements.
