Caltrans Accepting Online Applications for Sustainable Transportation Planning Grants

Caltrans will host a transportation planning grant workshop from 10 a.m. to noon Tuesday, Sept. 16 in the San Luis Obispo County Library Community Room, 995 Palm St. in San Luis Obispo.

Caltrans is now accepting online applications for fiscal year 2015-16 sustainable transportation planning grants until 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 31.

This newly consolidated grant program supports Caltrans’ new mission to provide a safe, sustainable, integrated and efficient transportation system to enhance California’s economy and livability. It also features just two funding categories — strategic partnerships ($1.5 million) and sustainable communities ($8.3 million).

These grants promote a balanced, comprehensive multi-modal transportation system. The funding is available for a wide range of transportation planning purposes addressing local and regional needs and issues. The implementation of these grants should result in initiating, adopting and programming transportation improvements.

Funding for both programs is available on a statewide, competitive basis. There are some restrictions that apply for applicants. The application and guidebook are available online by clicking here.

For more information, contact Melissa Streder, Caltrans associate transportation planner, at 805.549.3800 or [email protected].

— Jim Shivers is a public information officer for Caltrans District 5.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
