One Bay Area Grant 3

(OBAG-3)

On May 18, 2022, the Napa Valley Transportation Authority (NVTA) Board released the One Bay Area Grant-3 Call for Projects. The funds are authorized under the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).

There is approximately $6.1 million dollars available for projects in Napa County. OBAG Projects must have a transportation focus and may include planning activities. Eligible applicants are primarily cities/county though some non-profit, water/utility districts, tribes, resource conservation districts, and land trusts are eligible to receive funding when partnered with a local government agency that has a master agreement with Caltrans.

All project submittals must show a minimum non-federal 11.47% funding match. Projects that leverage other funding will be given higher priority in the grant award process.

All OBAG 3 applications must submit a Complete Streets Checklist for their project found here. For help filling out the list, please review the Complete Streets Checklist guidance.
