2017 Active Transportation Call for Proposals

IMAGE: Call for Proposals: 2017 Active Transportation

The Southern California Association of Governments is now accepting applications for new planning and non-infrastructure proposals as part of the Regional Active Transportation Program. The program received an influx of funding as a result of the adoption of Senate Bill 1, which has nearly doubled the available resources. This provides a unique opportunity for agencies that were not awarded funds in preceding cycles to develop capacity and be competitive for future funding by developing active transportation plans or participating in the region’s successful Go Human event series.

The 2017 Active Transportation Call for Proposals will be administered through SCAG’s Sustainability Planning Grants Program, allocating approximately $2 million in grant awards of up to $200,000 each. The funding is intended to support planning and non‐infrastructure projects that promote safety and encourage people to walk and bicycle, and to seed active transportation concepts that provide a preliminary step for future applicants. Public agencies that have been previously awarded a California Active Transportation Program Grant are ineligible for funding – see list of ineligible applicants below.

Applications will be accepted through August 31. Forms and related resources are available below:
