Active transportation in SGC funding workshops this week
August 11, 2014 1 Comment
You’ve been hearing from us a lot lately about the Strategic Growth Council’s (SGC) new Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities (AHSC) program. That’s because the AHSC will be a valuable new source of funding for walking and bicycling improvements, including Safe Routes to School projects and programs, and will award $130 million in program funds in 2015. We encourage all our partners to provide input to the SGC as staff develops guidelines this fall, and to be thinking about competitive local projects to propose for funding next year.
This week, the SGC kicks off the guidelines development process with three public workshops to take input on the program guidelines:
Meeting materials for the workshops have been posted on the SGC website.
In case you aren’t able to participate in person at any of the workshops, the presentation portion of the Fresno Workshop will also be webcast:
WEBCAST – August 12, 2014. 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM.

The National Partnership hosted a webinar last Friday to inform our local partners about key details that will provide the basis for the program guidelines and case studies from Transit-Oriented Development grants. We also shared some ideas for effective walking and bicycling project components to help generate ideas for priorities in the guidelines.
