      Introducing San Francisco's OneBayArea Grant Program
      Images of various types of fundable projects
      On May 17, 2012, the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) adopted the OneBayArea Grant Program (OBAG), which will direct an estimated $38.8 million in federal transportation funds to San Francisco over the next four years. The San Francisco County Transportation Authority (Authority) will decide which projects in San Francisco should receive OBAG funds.

      What kinds of projects can be funded?

      • Local Streets and Roads Preservation (e.g. street resurfacing)
      • Bicycle and Pedestrian Improvements (e.g. new bike lanes, wider sidewalks)
      • Transportation for Livable Communities (e.g. streetscape projects with pedestrian/bike/transit improvements, and transit station improvements)
      • Safe Routes to School (e.g. pedestrian crossing improvements, outreach focused on encouraging safe walk/bike access to schools)

      Who can apply for funds?

      Public agencies eligible to receive federal transportation funds.

      Which projects are most likely to be funded?

      MTC requires that at least 70% (about $25 million) of San Francisco’s OBAG funds be given to projects located in Priority Development Areas in order to support location of new jobs and housing near transit. (Download a PDF map of San Francisco's PDAs.)
      The Authority will also consider other factors when choosing which projects to fund, such as:
      • Benefits to multiple system users (e.g. pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders)
      • Project readiness (e.g. What is the status of the project’s environmental approvals?  Is there documented public support?)
      • Geographic equity
