Overview

SCAG’s Go Human Mini-Grants Program provides funding to non-profits and community-based organizations to implement local traffic safety projects. 

Program Goal

The Go Human Mini-Grants program aims to build 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. 

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 for a Mini-Grant. 

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.
