Performance Measurement for Mode Shift projects
Guidance for applicants

To better understand the impacts of the Mode Shift program, SACOG asks grant awardees to evaluate their projects based on goals and objectives that meet the program’s intent. Each project sponsor will identify goals and performance measures that highlight anticipated outcomes of the project. Project sponsors are asked to identify what your performance measures would be if their project was awarded funding, but do not need to collect any project-specific data before funds are awarded.

SACOG is available to support project sponsors in identifying goals and objectives as well as identifying tools and strategies for gathering data.
