SCAG Regional Council Approves Regional ATP Guidelines
June 3, 2016 Leave a comment
On Thursday, June 2, the SCAG Regional Council approved new ATP guidelines for the SCAG region, that will for the first time include a Supplemental Call for Projects! The guidelines, which still have to be approved by the California Transportation Commission, would set aside 5% of regional ATP funds for planning and capacity building projects, including Safe Routes to School non-infrastructure. SCAG is also proposing to apply the planning funding to all communities, not just disadvantaged communities, to allow a broader range of communities in each of the six counties in the region to be eligible to apply for planning funds.
The Supplemental Call for Projects will be released in the fall, likely September, and will only be open to projects whose costs are under $200,000, and are within communities that have not yet received an ATP award in Cycles 1 or 2. Total funding in each county will be based on population-based funding targets.
Stay tuned for more details as this call for project draws nearer!
