More information on the OBAG program is available on the OneBayArea Grant page.
Through the Regional SR2S program, which is separate from the OBAG program, the Authority will allocate $3 million specifically for projects and programs that support Safe Routes to School. Consistent with the approach taken in the previous funding cycle, the SR2S funds funds are being allocated to the four subareas by formula. The Regional Transportation Planning Committees have until June 4, 2013 to submit their recommendations on how to allocate their share of the SR2S funds to the Authority. The following guidelines outline in greater detail the funding requirements and information needed for each project.
Launching the 2014 Countywide Comprehensive Transportation Plan
To prepare ourselves for the challenges of the future, the Authority and its partners, the Regional Transportation Planning Committees (RTPCs), are beginning the process of updating the Countywide Transportation Plan (CTP) and the Action Plans for Routes of Regional Significance on which the CTP relies. The paper Launching the 2014 CTP Update [PDF-309 KB] outlines the issues and proposed approach for the update.
One of the issues we expect to address is that of sustainability. The paper Incorporating Sustainability into the 2014 Countywide Transportation Plan [PDF - 568 KB] considers whether and how the concept could be incorporated into the CTP and the Authority's other activities.
Safe Routes to School (SR2S) Needs Assessment
The Authority is preparing a high-level assessment of the range and extent of needs in Contra Costa for programs and projects that support Safe Routes to School. Information on the SR2S needs assessment can be found on the Safe Routes to School page.
