Green DOT was the primary consultant assisting the Shasta Regional Transportation Agency (Shasta RTA) in identifying local projects that are competitive to receive federal and state funding through various Grant programs. We worked with local jurisdictions, private-sector developers and other relevant stakeholders in addition to the Shasta RTA. Green DOT’s specific role on this team was to act as the transportation expert in identifying competitive projects and preparing grant applications. In 2015 our project team, in association with the City of Redding and Shasta RTA, prepared 3 major grant applications for over $110 million in state and federal grants. The programs involved include the Strategic Growth Council Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities program (AHSC), the Federal Highway Administration FASTLANE program, and the Caltrans administered Transit and Intercity Rail Program. The City of Redding was awarded the AHSC grant in October 2016 with $20 million of Cap and Trade money from the Strategic Growth Council. This project will transform downtown Redding into a more livable community.
