OBAG is funded by federal funding sources.

Alameda CTC is estimated to receive $63 million over four fiscal years (FY 2012-13 through FY 2015-16) from the OBAG program for transportation investments in Alameda County. Per the OBAG requirements, Alameda CTC must use 70 percent of the funds to support Priority Development Areas. The Metropolitan Transportation Commission has requested an OBAG program recommendation from Alameda CTC by June 30, 2013.
