Grants & Local Assistance


The Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) is the largest regional planning agency in the country; encompassing over 38,000 square miles, and serving a population of 19 million people. SCAG Sustainability Program / Compass Blueprint policies reflect deep engagement between SCAG as the regional Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), and its member cities.
 
 The Compass Blueprint Growth Vision resulted from extensive public outreach conducted from 2000-2004, and provided a vision for the region based on four guiding principles:
 
·         Mobility
·         Livability
·         Prosperity
·         Sustainability
 

The Compass Blueprint Growth Vision was replaced by the 2012-2035 Regional Transportation Plan / Sustainable Communities Strategy adopted on April 4th, 2012.  SCAG offers direct funding of innovative planning initiatives for member agencies through Sustainability Program Grants.
Opportunities
The SCAG Sustainability Program combines Compass Blueprint assistance for integrated land use and transportation planning with new Green Region initiative assistance aimed at local sustainability and Active Transportation assistance for bicycle and pedestrian planning efforts.
