Specialized Transportation Grant Program

Specialized Transportation Grant Program

The SANDAG Specialized Transportation Grant Program (STGP) funds projects and programs that expand mobility for older adults and people with disabilities. Eligible projects include the purchase of accessible vans and buses, coordinated volunteer driver programs, shopping shuttle services, non-emergency medical trips, and transit travel training classes. Eligible applicants include local nonprofit organizations and public agencies.

Approximately every two years, SANDAG conducts a competitive process, or call for projects, to award funding through the STGP. Funding for the STGP comes from two sources: the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Section 5310 program and the TransNet Senior Mini-Grant Program. Since 2006, we’ve awarded more than $31 million in federal grant funds and $23 million in TransNet funds to support more than 300 specialized grant-funded transportation projects.
