2021 SCTA Funding Program Call for Projects (FY23-FY27)

In June 2021, the SCTA recognized a number of transportation fund sources will be available in a compressed period of time and identified the need for the 2021 SCTA Funding Program Call for Projects to ensure resources are well-coordinated and directed to the highest priority projects. In order to capitalize on the funding opportunities coming up in the next 6-12 months SCTA issued a call for all projects to program funds for federal and State fiscal years of 2022-23 through 2026-27.

Initial programming was focused on the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) in order to meet MTC/CTC deadlines in the fall of 2021. The SCTA Board approved the STIP programming in October and the CTC is expected to approve the requested programming in mid March 2022.
When SCTA released the call for projects, each project sponsor was asked to identify its’ top five priorities. Knowing these priorities will help SCTA to assess and prepare projects for multiple funding programs, particularly the One Bay Area Grant (OBAG) Cycle 3 funds in order to strategically program the best projects with the various fund sources (below) available.

Project sponsors must have a master agreement with Caltrans to receive federal and State transportation funding and must also meet all the minimum requirements as established in Regional Delivery Guidelines (MTC Resolution 3606) and the SCTA application instructions. If an applicant does not meet these requirements they must partner with an agency that does.

All projects are expected to advance the goals of the Regional and Comprehensive Transportation Plans, and are subject to the requirements and guidelines of the respective funding programs.

The funding sources considered as part of this call are:
