Performance Measurement for Mode Shift projects
Guidance for applicants
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.
Mode Shift Goals
The Mode Shift program aims to reduce car trips, provide new mobility solutions, and make options for biking, walking, taking transit, and sharing rides the easy choice for all types of trips. The Mode Shift program also aims to address the needs of disinvested communities. Project sponsors will list one to two goals that their project/programs hope to achieve.
Identifying Performance Measures
Performance measures should be Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Time-bound (SMART) and directly relate to the unique characteristics of the project. Project sponsors are encouraged to use the below guidance and templates to identify performance measures that are applicable to their project and discuss the anticipated outcomes. Baseline measures and project performance measures should be scoped into the grant request and do not need to be conducted before the grant application submittal.
