Program Details


Our Aim

As a program of SCAG’s Go Human campaign, the Mini-Grants aim to build street-level community resiliency and increase the safety of vulnerable street users, defined as those who depend on biking and walking. Under the umbrella of traffic safety and mobility justice, Mini-Grants will fund strategies that:

  1. Identify, document or respond to emerging mobility and safety issues in local communities.

  2. Educate and engage communities on safe practices.

  3. Increase access to safe routes for vulnerable street users.

  4. Envision safety improvements to transportation infrastructure that prioritize local vulnerable street users.

Strategies outside of these categories will be considered. Applicants are encouraged to propose creative, strategic concepts that respond to the program goals and communities’ current needs.

Eligible Applicants

Community-based organizations, non-profits, artists, students and creators may apply for a Mini-Grant, and applicants may propose projects tailored to their expertise and capacity. Funding is available to recipients across the SCAG region, which encompasses the counties of Imperial, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura.

Application Information

The call for applications is now closed. We will announce a new call for applications in Spring 2021.
