Announcing FY 2019-20 Senate Bill 1 Final Draft Grant Application Guides
Caltrans is finalizing the next round of grant guides for the Senate Bill (SB) 1 planning grant funds:
$25 million for Sustainable Communities Grants to encourage local and regional planning that further state goals, including, but not limited to, the goals and best practices cited in the regional transportation plan guidelines adopted by the California Transportation Commission.
$6 million for Adaptation Planning Grants to local and regional agencies for climate change adaptation planning.
It is envisioned that these planning grants will provide much needed funding to support regional sustainable communities strategies and ultimately achieve the State's greenhouse gas reductions targets of 40 and 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2030 and 2050, respectively.
The Final Draft Grant Application Guides (below) were developed with input from two public workshops on June 7 and 13, 2018, consultation with California State Transportation Agency and other State agencies, and approximately 21 comments received from 9 organizations for the Discussion Draft Grant Application Guides. Two final public workshops will be held on September 25 and 26, 2018, for final input into the guides (see schedule below). Final Grant Application Guides are anticipated for release in early October, and applications will be due in November 2018. Provided below are the two final draft documents, draft application forms, and draft required templates for Sustainable Communities, Strategic Partnerships, and Adaptation Planning grants.
