REAP 2 (Green Means Go)

Overview

REAP 2 – Green Means Go Funding
Capital and Planning Awards expected March 2023

REAP 2 (officially, the Regional Early Action Planning Grants of 2021) is a statewide investment in support of implementing the goals and objectives of adopted regional plans. The SACOG board has directed the six-county Sacramento region’s share of the statewide REAP 2 funds towards a new Green Means Go funding program.

The Green Means Go funding program aims to catalyze infill development that improves housing affordability through non-transportation infrastructure and planning activities in locally adopted Green Zones.

Staff has released a revised set of program guidelines for the 2022 Green Means Go funding round, conducted a call for projects in the Early Activation category, and Planning and Capital categories. The SACOG board acted on funding awards for Early Activation in Nov of 2022, and will consider awards in the Planning and Capital categories in March of 2023. This March timeline is dependent on SACOG’s Green Means Go program being adopted by the state.

SACOG has also partnered with the Urban Land Institute on a set of Fall 2022 technical assistance panels in support of locally adopted Green Zones
