SACOG’s Mode Shift call for projects closed on November 30, 2022. The program received nine project applications representing $1,674,000 of need for projects and programs (see application log). The funding recommendation will be shared in February 2023.
Planning partners have asked questions about the SACOG Mode Shift funding program to invest in, test, and expand new and existing programs that reduce car trips, provide new mobility solutions, and make options like biking, walking, taking transit, and sharing rides the easy choice for all types of trips. These questions and answers are shared below; more will be added as the questions are identified.
To better understand the impacts of the Mode Shift program, SACOG asks grant awardees to evaluate their projects based on goals and objectives that meet the program’s intent. Each project sponsor will identify goals and performance measures that highlight anticipated outcomes of the project. Project sponsors are asked to identify what your performance measures would be if their project was awarded funding, but do not need to collect any project-specific data before funds are awarded.
SACOG is available to support project sponsors in identifying goals and objectives as well as identifying tools and strategies for gathering data.

SACOG’s Mode Shift program will invest in, test, and expand new and existing programs that reduce car trips, provide new mobility solutions, and make options like biking, walking, taking transit, and sharing rides the easy choice for all types of trips.
