TGM Grants

TGM Grants help local communities plan for streets and land use in a way that leads to more livable, economically vital, and sustainable communities and that increases opportunities for transit, walking and bicycling. TGM awards two types of grants:

  • Category 1 (PDF): Transportation System Planning, including TSP updates, to give Oregonians a range of transportation choices and meet requirements of the Oregon Transportation Planning Rule
  • Category 2 (PDF): Integrated Land Use & Transportation Planning, to promote compact, mixed-use development supported by improved pedestrian, bicycle, transit, and multi-modal street facilities

TGM has funded over 700 grant projects. See the list of completed and active projects through 2013 (PDF).

Grant Award Timeline

TGM awards grants on an annual basis. Applications are due in June and awards are made in August. All projects have a two-year period from award to completion.

2015 TGM Grant Pre-Application

The 2015 TGM Pre-application is now available. Pre-applicants receive direct assistance from TGM staff to develop a TGM grant application or secure other TGM services. Pre-applicants are asked to submit a short paragraph describing the local issue and desired outcome. A TGM representative contacts each pre-applicant to discuss project ideas and assist with submitting a qualifying grant project application or request for other TGM community assistance services. The formal pre-application period ends March 13, 2015, but they may be submitted at any time.

The Pre-application Packet contains a description of our services and submittal instructions. Please submit our Fillable Form, below.
