Go Human Awards 28 Safety Mini-Grants Across the Region

Press Release

SCAG’s Go Human campaign is proud to announce that we have awarded 28 Local Community Engagement and Safety Mini-Grants (Mini-Grants) to fund projects that build street-level community resiliency and increase the safety of vulnerable street users, including those who depend on biking and walking.

The Mini-Grants expand the concept of traffic safety amid the efforts to reduce the transmission of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and recognize its unprecedented impact on our communities. SCAG received nearly 50 applications and awarded more than $200,000 in Mini-Grants for projects across the region.

Awarded projects span a wide range of activities that center the mobility and transportation needs of those most impacted by COVID-19 including a storytelling radio series focusing on transit, virtual workshops for youth, free bike match and repair for essential workers and families, and co-creation of community resilience and safety resources, among many other creative and impactful projects. View the full list of funded projects on the Go Human website. Congrats to all awarded projects and community partners!
