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), which funds projects and programs that expand mobility options for seniors and individuals with disabilities. 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.

Funding Recommendations

At its March 26, 2021 meeting, the SANDAG Board of Directors approved the proposed funding recommendations for the Cycle 11 STGP call for projects. Funding for the STGP comes from two sources, the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Section 5310 program and the TransNet Senior Mini-Grant program. Funded projects and programs are available below by funding source.
