Funding Opportunities

The Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC) is responsible for the planning, programming and allocation of federal, state, regional, and local funding for transportation improvements throughout Alameda County. The investments approved by Alameda CTC result in a wide range of transportation improvements and services that facilitate safe, efficient and accessible travel for all types of transportation in all areas of Alameda County. The Comprehensive Investment Plan (CIP) brings the vision and goals established through the Alameda CTC’s long-range countywide plans into the near term by focusing funding investments over a five-year programming and allocation period. The purpose of the CIP is to facilitate strategic programming and allocation of all federal, state, regional and local fund sources under the Alameda CTC’s purview. This includes, but is not limited to, federal Surface Transportation Program (STP)/Congestion Mitigation Air Quality (CMAQ), State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP), County Transportation Fund for Clean Air (TFCA), and local sales tax measures and vehicle registration fee programs.


The CIP streamlines the programming of these fund sources by considering all available fund sources through a consolidated process that prioritizes, evaluates, and recommends funding to critical transportation infrastructure and operations needs that build and maintain the county’s transportation system. The expenditure and revenue assumptions included in the CIP are updated annually and proposals for new projects and programs are considered every two years as part of a full CIP update cycle.

The CIP also serves to satisfy the strategic plan requirements for the 1986 Measure B, 2000 Measure B, 2010 Vehicle Registration Fee and the 2014 Measure BB programs, each of which generates a local fund source directly administered by Alameda CTC. In addition, the CIP serves as the Capital Improvement Program required of Alameda CTC as the congestion management agency for Alameda County.

The Alameda CTC has a number of grant programs available to local agencies and organizations for providing transportation services, programs and projects.

The following calls for projects are open at this time:

2020 Paratransit Discretionary Grant Program

The Alameda CTC is initiating a call for projects for its 2020 Paratransit Discretionary Grant Program (Paratransit Program) for eligible transportation projects and programs targeted towards seniors and people with disabilities.

The 2020 Paratransit Program’s application period will open Tuesday, November 6, 2018 and close Friday, December 14, 2018. Eligible applicants with projects/programs that are implementation ready during fiscal years 2019-2020 through 2023-2024 should apply during this time. Alameda CTC’s 2020 Paratransit Program funding recommendations will be considered by the Commission in late spring 2019.
