What is the Go Human Mini-Grants Program?
The Mini-Grants Program supports community-based organizations committed to traffic safety and justice. Under the umbrella of Go Human, the Mini-Grants Program aims to build street-level community resiliency and increase the safety of people most harmed by traffic injuries and fatalities, including Black, Indigenous and People of Color; people with disabilities; and frontline workers, particularly those walking and biking. Applicants are encouraged to propose creative, strategic projects that center justice and respond to the program goal and communities’ current needs.
Who is eligible for a Go Human Mini-Grant?
Community-based organizations, non-profits and social enterprises are eligible to apply for a Mini-Grant. Funding is available to recipients across the SCAG region, which encompasses the counties of:
- Los Angeles
- San Bernardino
Funding will be distributed to prioritize equity, particularly within communities that have been historically disinvested.
Organizations do not need to have transportation as their core focus. We welcome public health and disability justice organizations, social service providers, organizations that serve tribal nations, and organizations serving elders or rural communities, among others. Questions?
