SACOG launches over $12.5M in competitive grants
Four competitive grant programs launched on June 25


Have an innovative idea you want to test in the Sacramento region? Looking for a place to launch a tested and performance-based project? Want to help our region emit fewer emissions? Four new competitive grant programs are available this summer with over $12.5 million in available funding. The grants vary from temporary activations under $10,000 to large infrastructure projects and are available to partners across the region.

As the Sacramento region positions itself to be the test bed of innovation while launching performance-based programs, these grants will spur public private partnerships as we pursue unique ways to reduce congestion and improve air quality.
