- One Voice Approach
Do you have transportation issues in your community that you would like discussed at the federal level? Do you have a priority project that impacts the region and you want local elected officials, business leaders, and stakeholders to discuss with our Congressional and federal representatives?
If so, SJCOG is issuing a call for projects for the 2018 advocacy trip. Since SJCOG is a transportation planning agency, our focus is on transportation priorities and projects. However, the SJCOG Board will continue to review all other project requests as has been done in previous cycles - even if they are not transportation focused.
Please submit any proposed projects that you may have in on the project request form. The information will be used to help educate federal elected officials, administration staff, and other decision makers. All proposed recommendations must be submitted by February 26, 2018 COB.
If you plan to resubmit the same project request for consideration that was submitted last year, please make sure that you provide an updated version for review and consideration. We encourage new regional priorities as well. Furthermore, if your agency is submitting more than one project request for consideration, please identify which is the number one priority followed with the 2nd, 3rd, etc.
The Board will review and select the priorities at their March board meeting.

Our efforts are positively recognized at the federal level and we have been encouraged to continue our collaborative approach and build upon the relationships and communications established with our federal representatives.
Although Congress stopped earmarking funds in 2010, the federal government still distributes billions of dollars through formula and discretionary programs. The San Joaquin One Voice® delegates take this opportunity to receive counsel from legislators, legislative staff, and the administration about the various federal programs and how our region can successfully compete in the grant process.
