Transportation Partnership Programs

Post

The Transportation Partnership Programs (TPP) is comprised of two complementary programs – the County Transportation Commission (CTC) Partnership Program and the Regional Pilot Initiatives (RPI) Partnership Program. The CTC Partnership and RPI Programs target investments towards critical infrastructure that improve mobility, quality of life, and economic potential for the 19 million people who call this region home and the 3.7 million new residents projected by 2045.

CTC Partnership Program

Consistent with the goals and objectives of REAP 2.0, SCAG developed the CTC Partnership Program with the region’s six County Transportation Commissions to fund the development of plans, programs, pilot projects, and certain signature GHG/VMT reducing capital projects with a strong nexus to housing. The CTC Partnership Program will provide immediate benefit to the region by supporting transformative planning activities aligned with Key Connection strategies identified in Connect SoCal, which can be implemented quickly to advance new concepts for reducing VMT while simultaneously achieving other program goals for REAP 2.0.

On November 3, 2022, after incorporating the feedback received during the 22-day public comment period, the CTC Partnership Program Guidelines were approved by the Transportation Committee and Regional Council. SCAG will open the CTC Partnership Program Call for Projects pending approval of SCAG’s final REAP 2.0 application by the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD). All activities will be evaluated for REAP 2.0 eligibility.

Regional Pilot Initiatives Program

The RPI Partnership Program is focused on demonstrating innovative, next generation technologies and models of regional significance, specifically those with the potential to change transportation and housing paradigms towards building more sustainable communities.

RPI projects will be managed by SCAG with participation from local partners. SCAG envisions RPI projects to build on existing studies and plans developed by SCAG. Early concepts under consideration include, but are not limited to, mobility hubs, dedicated transit lanes, mobility wallets, universal basic mobility, applied research using big data, and VMT mitigation banks.

SCAG is in the process of procuring a technical support services consultant to aid in the development and implementation of the RPI Program, and will post additional information about the program as it evolves.
