Sustainable Communities Program


The Sustainable Communities Program (SCP) is a technical assistance program that strengthens partnerships with local agencies and strategic partners who are responsible for land use and transportation decisions to help the region achieve its unified goals. The SCP provides opportunities to secure resources to meet the diverse planning needs of local communities and support implementation of regional planning policies and strategies. 

Specific funding categories are developed every four years alongside the adoption of Connect SoCal – the Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy, with Calls for Applications released on a rolling basis thereafter. SCAG is currently providing technical assistance to 57 local agencies and has funded 110 projects totaling over $21.6 million since 2016.
