The Community Design Funding Program provides funding to local governments to build placemaking projects in their communities. The projects must implement any of the SACOG Blueprint Principles: (1) housing options (2) transportation options; (3) infill development; (4) mixed land uses; (5) compact development; (6) preservation of natural resources, and (7) quality design. The most commonly awarded projects in the past have been streetscape improvements with associated land use development that are consistent with the Blueprint Principles. The program is available to cities, counties and other local government agencies within Sacramento, Sutter, Yolo and Yuba Counties.
The SACOG board adopted the 2021 Community Design program in April 2021. There is no open call for projects in this program at this time.
