SJCOG staff prepared guidelines and a supplemental application to accommodate a combined Regional Call for Projects ATP Cycle 5 funds, Measure K funds, and funding set aside from the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program (CMAQ) for active transportation. These guidelines adapted the latest ATP Guidelines and the guidelines developed for the previous 2017-2021 Measure K Bicycle, Pedestrian, and Safe Routes to School and Smart Growth Incentive Program to suit SJCOG’s needs and the requirements of the different funding programs. These were approved by the SJCOG Board on April 16, 2020 and by the CTC on May 13, 2020. On May 28, 2020, the SJCOG Board amended the Regional ATP Guidelines to extend the application due date to September 15, 2020 to match the statewide application due date, and approved launching the Call for Projects.
