Go Human Community Streets Mini-Grants

Go Human Community Streets Mini-Grants Program

The SCAG Go Human Community Streets 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.

Applicants are encouraged to propose creative, strategic projects that center justice and respond to the program goal and communities’ current needs.

Funding priorities for the 2021 Mini-Grants Program include:

  • Investment in organizations focused on or led by members of disadvantaged or historically underinvested communities in the region; public health organizations, disability justice organizations, social service organizations; parent groups; organizations that serve elders; organizations that serve rural communities.
  • Projects that leverage Go Human safety resources, including co-branded safety materials or the Kit of Parts.
  • Creative leadership and capacity building strategies.

SCAG will award up to $10,000 to selected projects (previous awards were as small as $1,000, based on applicant requests). All projects shall be implemented between June 14, 2021 and August 27, 2021. Payments will be made to Mini-Grant awardees upon successful completion and submission of deliverables, within 5–8 weeks. The applicant will be responsible for securing any necessary permits or permissions.

Eligible applicants must submit their applications by May 19, 2021. For more information, please visit: https://scag.ca.gov/apply-mini-grant
