BACKGROUND

In November 2015, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) adopted the One Bay Area Grant Cycle 2 (OBAG 2), the Bay Area’s federal transportation funding framework for the next five years (Fiscal Years 2017/18 to 2021/22), with an emphasis on supporting the focused growth near transit. The San Francisco County Transportation Authority (Transportation Authority) is responsible for selecting San Francisco’s priorities for OBAG 2 County Program funds ($42.3 million).

WHAT KINDS OF PROJECTS CAN BE FUNDED?

  • Transit expansion, reliability and access improvements
  • Smart system management
  • Transportation demand management
  • Safety and streetscape improvements
  • Safe Routes to School
  • Priority Development Area planning and implementation

WHO CAN APPLY FOR FUNDS?

Public agencies eligible to receive federal transportation funds.

Which projects are most likely to be funded?

MTC requires that at least 70% of San Francisco’s OBAG funds be given to projects located in Priority Development Areas (map in PDF; link to an interactive map; link to the region's PDA website) in order to support location of new jobs and housing near transit.  See MTC's OBAG Guidelines (Resolution 4707) for more detail on MTC's requirements.

Other factors the Transportation Authority will consider when choosing which projects to fund include:

  • Project readiness
  • Improvement to transportation capacity and reliability in core corridors
  • Proximity to proposed affordable housing and communities of concern
  • Safety and multi-modal benefits
  • Community support
