Strategic Partnerships Grants - encourage regional agencies to partner with Caltrans to identify and address statewide/interregional transportation deficiencies in the state highway system, strengthen government-to-government coordination, and result in programmed system improvements that achieve the State’s overarching goals. Interested sub-recipients may also partner with their regional agencies for this grant.
Sustainable Communities Grants - funds transportation planning to identify and address mobility deficiencies in the multimodal transportation system, encourage stakeholder collaboration, involve active public engagement, integrate Smart Mobility 2010 concepts, and ultimately result in programmed system improvements, and achieve the Caltrans Mission and overarching objectives.
