Comprehensive Transportation Projects

Cycle 11 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 24, 2020, the SANDAG Board of Directors approved the eligibility and evaluation criteria for the Cycle 11 Call for Projects, which makes available an estimated $7.2 million in funds to distribute.

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 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 is open for a 90-day period. Applications are due by 4 p.m. on October 30, 2020. Grant documents are available below.
