C/CAG Lifeline Transportation Program Cycle 6 Call for Projects

The City/County Association Governments of San Mateo County (C/CAG) is pleased to announce the call for projects for the Lifeline Transportation Program Cycle 6.  This program is designed to help low-income residents by funding transportation projects that will improve their mobility within the community.  Public agencies including transit agencies, city/ county social service agencies, cities, counties, and non-profit organizations are encouraged to apply.

The Lifeline Transportation Program is aimed to fund projects, identified through the community-based transportation planning (CBTP) process, which improves the mobility of low-income residents.

Projects must target and serve low-income communities in San Mateo County. Additionally, projects must have measurable deliverables and the project sponsor must possess the ability to effectively reach the low-income communities in need.  Projects identified in San Mateo Community Based Transportation Plans (CBTPs) will be prioritized in the scoring process. However, projects identified through other relevant planning efforts in other low-income areas are also eligible.

Pass-Through Concurrence Letters: If you are not a transit agency, you must obtain a concurrence letter from a transit agency (i.e. SamTrans) willing to pass-through the funds. Please submit all concurrence requests to SamTrans staff Rebecca Arthur ( no later than Monday, February 8, 2021.

Applications are due on Friday, February 19, 2021 at 12:00 noon. Late applications will not be considered.
