2023 Go Human Community Hubs Grant Program

Go Human Community Hubs Grant Program

SCAG seeks to facilitate opportunities for equity-centered strategies to meet local and regional safety goals. The 2023 Go Human Community Hubs Grant Program offers funding opportunities for community organizations to implement local traffic safety and community engagement strategies that leverage community gathering and resource sites or networks.

Program Overview & Goal

The Go Human Community Hubs Grant Program aims to support street-level community resiliency and increase the safety of people most harmed by traffic injuries and fatalities, including without limitation Black, Indigenous and People of Color; people with disabilities; and frontline workers, particularly those walking and biking.

The Community Hubs Program aims to fund projects that leverage new or existing community gathering and resource sites to implement traffic safety strategies including, but not limited to messaging, education, engagement activities, leadership development, community assessment, or resource distribution. Hubs may include a physical or digital form, facilitating accessible spaces to streamline community education and resource distribution. A hub co-locates multiple resources, holistically responding to multiple community needs.

Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS), through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. 

Eligible Applicants 

Community-based organizations, non-profits, and social enterprises are eligible to submit a Community Hubs proposal.

Funding is available to recipients across the SCAG region, which encompasses the counties of Imperial, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura. 

Funding will be distributed to prioritize equity, particularly within communities that have been historically disinvested or in disadvantaged communities.
