SCAG’s 2023 Go Human Community Hubs Grants Program: Call for Projects Now Open
The call for projects for SCAG’s 2023 Go Human Community Hubs Program is open now through April 21. The program facilitates an equity-centered approach to meeting local and regional safety goals by providing funding opportunities for community organizations to implement traffic safety and community engagement strategies. Interested applicants are invited to review the Program Guidelines.
Program Overview & Goals
The Go Human Community Hubs Program aims to increase the safety of people most harmed by traffic injuries and fatalities, including without limitation Black, Indigenous and People of Color; people with disabilities; elders and frontline workers, particularly those walking and biking.
The program aims to fund projects that leverage new or existing community resource sites and networks to implement traffic safety strategies including, but not limited to messaging, education, engagement activities, leadership development or cultivation, community assessment, storytelling, traffic safety demonstration projects or resource distribution. Hubs may include a physical or digital form, providing accessible spaces to streamline community opportunities. A hub co-locates multiple resources, holistically responding to multiple community needs.
Eligibility and Funding
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 disadvantaged.
