Local Grant Program
The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) developed the Clean California Local Grant Program through which funds will go to local communities to beautify and improve local streets and roads, tribal lands, parks, pathways, and transit centers. Through the combination of adding beautification measures and art in public spaces along with the removal of litter and debris, this effort will enhance communities and improve spaces for walking and recreation.
The goals of the Clean CA Local Grant Program are to:
- Reduce the amount of waste and debris within public rights-of-way, pathways, parks, transit centers, and other public spaces.
- Enhance, rehabilitate, restore, or install measures to beautify and improve public spaces and mitigate the urban heat island effect.
- Enhance public health, cultural connection, and community placemaking by improving public spaces for walking and recreation.
- Advance equity for underserved communities.
We are excited to announce that there will be a Cycle 2 of the program that will provide approximately $100 million in grant funding to local communities. Our first stakeholder workshop on Cycle 2 and updates to the program guidelines was held on November 3, 2022. A recording of that workshop is posted in the below table. Our second stakeholder workshop will be on December 13, 2022, from 1 PM to 2:30 PM. Register for second stakeholder workshop. This workshop will also be recorded. The workshop will discuss topics such as updates to the draft guidelines based on comments from the first workshop, as well as grant administrative requirements, the award process, the grant agreement execution process, and invoicing and reporting requirements. An updated version of the guidelines will be posted prior to the second workshop.
