Transportation Planning Grant Program

Transportation planning grants promote a balanced, comprehensive multi-modal transportation system. These grants may be used for a wide range of transportation planning purposes, which address local and regional transportation needs and issues. The implementation of these grants should ultimately lead to the adoption, initiation, and programming of transportation improvements.

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), Division of Transportation Planning, provides the following transportation planning grant programs:

  • Strategic Partnerships - $1.5 million
  • Sustainable Communities - $8.3 million
