2023 Consolidated Grant Program

Row of Traffic cone in the road. Repair scene.

The RTC is responsible for selecting projects to receive certain state, federal, and regional funds, including approximately $26.6 million from the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP), Regional Surface Transportation Block Grant (RSTP/STBG), and SB 1 Local Partnership Program (LPP). In addition, the RTC is also responsible for programming $34.7 million for transit capital and operations projects through the SB125 Transit and Intercity Rail Capital Program (TIRCP) and the Zero Emission Transit Capital Program (ZETCP). These one-time funds can only be used for transit projects.

This summer the RTC issued a call for projects, soliciting applications for these funds, with applications due on October 25, 2023. The RTC received 23 applications requesting over $95 million whereas only $61.3 million is available. The following table summarizes 23 project applications received in response to the consolidated call for projects, including links to proposals and awarded funding amounts. The RTC’s Bicycle CommitteeE&DTACITAC, and new Transportation Equity Workgroup reviewed the preliminary recommendations and provided input at their November 2023 meetings. The RTC determined funding allocations for submitted projects at its public hearing on December 7, 2023. This decision was based on recommendations from RTC staff, advisory committees, and public input.
