Regional Sustainable Infrastructure Planning Grant Program

The Regional Sustainable Infrastructure Planning Grant Program is one of the three Sustainable Communities Strategy (SCS) implementation programs directed by the Fresno COG Policy Board during the 2014 RTP/SCS adoption process. The grant-specific objective is to encourage local and regional multimodal transportation and land-use planning that furthers the region’s RTP/SCS, contributes to the State’s GHG reduction targets and other State goals, including but not limited to, the goals and best practices cited in the 2017 RTP Guidelines, addresses the needs of disadvantaged communities, and also assists in achieving the Caltrans Mission and Grant Program Overarching Objectives.

Grants

 

Cycle 1 (FY 17/18) and Cycle 2 (FY 18/19) projects for the Regional Sustainable Infrastructure Planning Grant Program were selected through a scoring committee and approved by the Fresno COG Policy Board.  The available funding for each cycle was $155,278, provided by Senate Bill (SB) 1 – The Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017. SB1 is a transportation funding bill which provides a reliable source of funds through the Caltrans planning grant program.  This grant funding is intended to support and implement Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) Sustainable Communities Strategies (SCS) (where applicable) and to ultimately achieve the State’s greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction target of 40 and 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2030 and 2050, respectively.  Fresno COG received a total of seven applications requesting over $640,000 in funding, four applications for Cycle 1 and three applications for Cycle 2.
