With support from the California Office of Traffic Safety, the Local Community Engagement and Safety Mini-Grants fund projects that build street-level community resiliency and increase the safety of vulnerable street users, including those who depend on biking and walking. Community-based organizations, non-profits, artists, students and creators may propose projects for consideration. SCAG will award up to $10,000 to selected projects.
The Local Community Engagement and Safety Mini-Grants (Mini-Grants) expand the concept of traffic safety amid the efforts to reduce the transmission of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and recognize its unprecedented impact on our communities. Within this environment, SCAG recognizes the shifting needs and priorities of communities across the region.
As a program of SCAG's
Go Human campaign, the Mini-Grants aim to build street-level community resiliency and increase the safety of vulnerable street users, defined as those who depend on biking and walking. Under the umbrella of traffic safety and mobility justice, Mini-Grants will fund strategies that:
1. Identify, document or respond to emerging mobility and safety issues in local communities.
2. Educate and engage communities on safe practices.
3. Increase access to safe routes for vulnerable street users.
4. Envision safety improvements to transportation infrastructure that prioritize local vulnerable street users.
Strategies outside of these categories will be considered. Applicants are encouraged to propose creative, strategic concepts that respond to the program goals and communities' current needs.
Community-based organizations, non-profits, artists, students and creators may apply for a Mini-Grant, and applicants may propose projects tailored to their expertise and capacity. Funding is available to recipients across the SCAG region, which encompasses the counties of Imperial, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura.
SCAG will award up to $10,000 to selected projects (previous awards were as small as $1,000, based on applicant requests). All projects shall be implemented between
May 2020 and July 31, 2020.
Payments will be made to Mini-Grant awardees upon successful completion and submission of deliverables. The applicant will be responsible for securing any necessary permits or permissions.
