One Bay Area Grant 1 (OBAG 1)
First launched in 2015, the One Bay Area Grant (OBAG) program focused on how to best use federal transportation funding to address climate change.
OBAG 1 integrated the region’s federal transportation program with California’s climate laws and the Sustainable Communities Strategy, by targeting funding to Priority Development Areas, Priority Conservation Areas, and Climate Initiatives, while maintaining commitments to existing transportation priorities.
Priority Conservation Areas are locations designated for the protection of natural habitats and the preservation of open space for future generations. OBAG 1 supported a PCA pilot.
OBAG 1 supported the Sustainable Communities Strategy for the Bay Area by promoting transportation investments in Priority Development Areas.
