OCTA to Compete for SB 1 Funding

OCTA to Compete for SB 1 Funding

At its meeting on October 9, the OCTA Board of Directors received a report listing competitive projects eligible for State Bill (SB) 1 funding.

SB 1, the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017, will provide an estimated $52.5 billion for transportation purposes over the next ten years.  SB 1 funds will maintain existing state and local transportation infrastructure while doubling local street and road funding in each city and county. Investments will focus on fix-it-first purposes for local streets and roads, highways, transit operations and maintenance, capital investments, and active transportation.

There are six competitive SB 1 programs:

  • Active Transportation Program
  • Caltrans Planning Grants
  • Local Partnership Program
  • Solutions for Congested Corridors
  • Trade Corridor Enhancement Program
  • Transit and Intercity Rail Capital Program

OCTA’s list of eligible projects will be submitted for grants from the estimated $18 million per year that will be provided to Orange County for new transit funding.
