Log of Mode Shift Applications Received
Nine projects request $1.7 million
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.
The 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. In addition, the program seeks to further racial equity through projects and programs that directly reach and engage low-income, disabled, and/or communities of color to address their community’s transportation needs.
The Mode Shift program will award up to $1,500,000 in grants for small non‐infrastructure programs, events, quick‐build projects, tactical urbanism, or projects to reduce single occupancy vehicle trips and miles by encouraging biking, walking, riding transit, carpooling, vanpooling, and teleworking as options for reducing car trips.
