Cycle 10 Call for Projects: Specialized Transportation Grant Program

Approximately every two years, SANDAG conducts a competitive process to award funding through the Specialized Transportation Grant Program (STGP). On July 27, 2018, the SANDAG Board of Directors approved the evaluation criteria and released the Cycle 10 Call for Projects to distribute approximately $7 million. 

The SANDAG STGP funds projects and programs that expand mobility options for seniors and individuals with disabilities. Funding for the STGP comes from two sources: the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Section 5310 program and the TransNet Senior Mini-Grant program.

Eligible projects include, but are not limited to, purchase of accessible vans and buses, coordinated volunteer driver programs, shopping shuttle services, non-emergency medical trips, and transit travel training classes.  

The call for projects was open for a 90-day period and closed at 4 p.m. on October 25, 2018.
