SB 1 Adaptation Planning Grant
Fiscal Year (FY) 2019-20 Caltrans Transportation Planning Grant awards. A statewide total of 198 grant applications were received and requested approximately $62 million for: Sustainable Communities Competitive, Strategic Partnerships (including transit), and the third and final year of Adaptation Planning. Of these applications, 84 transportation planning projects were selected for grant awards, totaling approximately $27.8 million. Award and Non-Award lists for each grant are provided below. In addition, Metropolitan Planning Organizations will receive $12.5 million in Sustainable Communities Formula grants to further their Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy. Grant applicants are encouraged to contact Caltrans district staff to request feedback for unsuccessful applications and receive technical assistance with application development. 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.
