Calls for Projects — Funding Opportunities

MTC often looks for new transportation projects and programs in which it can invest federal, state or regional funds.

We do this by issuing a Call for Projects — inviting prospective project sponsors to compete for grants or other funding.

Check this page regularly to learn about upcoming funding opportunities!

Calls for Projects typically are reserved for cities, counties, county congestion management agencies (CMAs), transit agencies or other public agencies that have agreements in place with the California Department of Transportation to receive federal-aid funding. But some Calls for Project are open to nonprofit organizations.

Businesses, nonprofits and community groups often may apply for funding opportunities geared toward public agencies — as long as they team with a public agency willing to serve as the project sponsor.  In these cases, the public agency would be the grant recipient, and could then subcontract with the private business or nonprofit.
