Early Activation Application
Applications extended to September 15


SACOG has released the application for the $3 million Early Activation Category (Category A) of the 2022 Green Means Go funding program. The application deadline for the Early Activation Category has been extended to September 15, 2022.

The category will fund either planning or infrastructure activities that accelerate infill residential development in the near term (grant funds must be expended by October 2024). Project scopes submitted to this Early Activation category should be for specific non-transportation (defined as water, wastewater, stormwater, electricity/dry utilities, and/or broadband) infrastructure components and can include site-specific activities.

The separate Planning (Category B) and Capital (Category C) categories of the 2022 Green Means Go funding program will fund corridor-wide investments. Those two categories will release their call for projects in August 2022.

There are three required components of the Early Activation Category application submittal:

  • Application (use template in ‘related links’ to the right)
  • Green Means Go Project Scope Timeline (use template in ‘related links’ to the right)
  • Community Base Organization (or similar group) Letter of Support (no required template, i.e., can use any format)

Applicants to the Early Activation category are encouraged to review the Green Means Go program guidelines prior to beginning an application.

Finally, the Early Activation application asks for simple data metrics. Many of these metrics are produced by a custom Green Means Go funding program data tool. The application includes instructions on how to use the data tool, as well as instructions on how to submit a completed application.

If you have any questions during the application period, please reach out to Garett Ballard-Rosa at gballard-rosa@sacog.org.
