Comprehensive Land Use and Regional Growth Projects
TransNet Smart Growth Incentive Program
The TransNet Smart Growth Incentive Program (SGIP) funds transportation-related infrastructure improvements and planning efforts that support smart growth development. The SGIP will award two percent of the annual TransNet revenues for the next 40 years to local governments through a competitive grant program to support projects that will help better coordinate transportation and land use in the San Diego region.
The goal of the TransNet SGIP is to fund comprehensive public infrastructure projects and planning activities that will facilitate compact, mixed use development focused around public transit, and that will increase housing and transportation choices. The projects funded under this program will serve as models for how modest investments in infrastructure and planning can make smart growth an asset to communities around the region. These investments should help attract private developers to build projects that, with the support of the TransNet-funded projects, create great places in the San Diego region.
