TGM Grants

TGM Grants help local communities plan for transportation 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 (PDF):

  • Category 1: Transportation System Planning, to give Oregonians a range of transportation choices and meet requirements of the Oregon Transportation Planning Rule
  • Category 2: Integrated Land Use and Transportation Planning, to promote communities that meet the needs of all Oregonians to live, work, and move about

TGM has funded over 700 grant projects. See the list of completed and active projects through 2017 (PDF).

TGM awards grants on an annual basis. Applications are due in June and awards are made in August. Projects typically have a two-year period from award to completion. See the Grant Award Timeline for more information.
