Regional Funding Programs

Overview

Regional Flexible Funding Programs
2018 Call for Projects Closed

SACOG conducts funding rounds to allocate funds to transportation projects based on available apportionments of regional Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ), Regional Surface Transportation Program (RSTP), State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP), Active Transportation Program (ATP), and SACOG managed funds. The funds get distributed through individual funding programs that together make up a funding round. The 2018 Funding Round consists of the Regional Program, Community Design, Regional ATP, Next Generation Transportation Demand Management (TDM), and Green Region programs.

Project applications are solicited from public agencies and their partners located in the SACOG region. All funding programs except Regional ATP are only available to projects located within Sacramento, Sutter, Yolo and Yuba counties. Jurisdictions in El Dorado and Placer counties apply through the El Dorado County Transportation Commission and the Placer County Transportation Planning Agency, respectively. Please see below to learn more about each program and to see previously selected projects.

The Regional ATP funding program is available for all six counties in the region. The Regional Active Transportation Program is separate from the Statewide Active Transportation Program. SACOG jurisdictions may apply to both programs, but the State—not SACOG—selects projects for the Statewide program.

PPA Tool Now Available

SACOG has launched the Project Performance Assessment tool to analyze transportation investments at the project level. The tool stems from a 2017 working group and its technical review of performance assessment methodologies. SACOG will use the Project Performance Assessment (PPA) tool in support of the 2018 agency funding round. Individual programs within the overarching 2018 funding round will use the PPA tool differently.
