Regional Program

Overview

Regional Program
Staff recommendation released for 2021 round

The merged Regional Program is SACOG’s largest competitive program. It combines into a single program the Regional/Local and Bicycle & Pedestrian funding programs of the 2015 cycle. The emphasis of the 2021 Regional Program is to fund cost-effective transportation projects that realize the performance benefits of the MTP/SCS. The program seeks to promote effective and efficient use of limited state and federal funding resources to both develop and maintain the regional transportation network and provide regional benefits. This is accomplished through the funding of capital and lump-sum category projects included in the 2020 MTP/SCS.

PPA Tool Now Available (2018 round)

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.
