Category 1: 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: Integrated Land Use & Transportation Planning, to promote compact, mixed-use development supported by improved pedestrian, bicycle, transit, and multi-modal street facilities

Pre-Applications for Grants and Other TGM Services
(Code Assistance, Quick Response, TSP Assessment, & Outreach Workshops)
Submitting a pre-application for a TGM service is strongly recommended. A TGM representative will contact each pre-applicant to discuss project ideas and assist with the submission of a qualifying grant project application or request for other TGM community assistance services. A pre-application packet that describes all TGM services, including grants, as well as an electronically fillable form, can be found here:
A pre-application is not required to obtain TGM services, but is encouraged, particularly for grant projects. The suggested grant pre-application deadline is March 15, 2013, but pre-applications for all TGM services, including grants, may be submitted at any time during the year.
Although Code Assistance, Quick Response, TSP Assessment, and Education and Outreach workshop projects are not awarded through a competitive process, we encourage you to submit a pre-application if you anticipate needing any of these Community Assistance Program services.
