Federal Surface Transportation Program funding is available to Alameda County jurisdictions for on-call consultant expertise through the Sustainable Communities Technical Assistance Program call for projects.
The Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC) is pleased to announce a Call for Projects for the Sustainable Communities Technical Assistance Program (SC-TAP). The Alameda CTC has created an expanded technical assistance program for Alameda County jurisdictions that will provide significant support in the form of on-call consultant expertise for Priority Development Area (PDA) planning and implementation, complete streets policy implementation and bicycle and pedestrian planning and engineering technical support.
The SC-TAP has been designed to be consistent with One Bay Area Grant Program requirements per the Metropolitan Transportation Commission Resolution 4035 as well as with MTC’s PDA Planning Program and the Association of Bay Area Government’s FOCUS Technical Assistance Program. The primary fund source is the federal Surface Transportation Program, which requires a transportation nexus (see the Program Guidelines for further details).
