2019 Funding Round
The 2019 SACOG funding round is a one-time program to complete the 2018/2019 funding cycle. Generally, SACOG conducts a funding round every two years. Yet as part of the 2018 funding round the SACOG board acted to withhold approximately one third of that funding until 2019 (due to risks to state sources of funding at that time and the desire to align with the policy priorities developed in the long-range plan). As such, the SACOG board will award the remaining approximately $55 million through a competitive funding round in 2019. The board is considering different approaches to the 2019 round and has expressed interest in an accelerated timeline in making the grant awards. Staff expects the board to act on a 2019 funding round policy framework at its April 18th meeting.
