History

On December 15, 2017, the SANDAG Board of Directors released the Cycle 4 call for projects for the Smart Growth Incentive Program (SGIP) and Active Transportation Grant Program (ATGP) to distribute $27 million in SGIP funds and $3.6 million in ATGP funds. Funds also were available through the SGIP for jurisdictions to develop a Climate Action Plan (CAP) and Complete Streets Policy if they did not currently have these documents adopted.

The call for projects was open for a 90-day period. Applications were due by 4 p.m. on Thursday, March 15, 2018. Only local jurisdictions in the San Diego region (the 18 cities and the County of San Diego) were eligible to apply for grant funds under these programs.
