Grants to Oregon cities, counties, tribal governments, and certain special districts for local planning projects. Funding is intended for projects that improve the quality of life for local residents, increase mobility and equity, support economic growth, and promote environmental stewardship. Eligible project categories include transportation system planning or integrated land use and transportation planning.

TGM grants are for planning work leading to local policy decisions. Projects should result in the development of an adoption-ready plan or land use regulation amendment.

Eligible Projects:

Applicants may choose from one of two grant categories: Transportation System Planning or Integrated Land Use and Transportation Planning.

  • Category 1 - Transportation System Planning
    • Purpose: To help local governments develop and update transportation system plans (TSPs) and implementing measures that implement the Transportation Planning Rule (OAR 660-012-0045); implement the Oregon Transportation Plan and other statewide modal and topic plans; increase opportunities for walking, biking, and transit; or reduce reliance on the state highway for local travel needs.
  • Category 2 - Integrated Land Use and Transportation Planning
    • Purpose: To help local governments develop integrated land use and transportation plans and implementing measures that encourage livable, affordable, and accessible communities for all ages and incomes; promote compact, mixed-use, walkable development to increase walking, biking, and transit; or support physical, social, and economic needs.

Eligible Uses for Category 1 and Category 2can be found at

Estimated Size of Grant:

Award amounts generally range between $75,000 and $250,000.

Term of Contract:

Grants are awarded annually and have a two to three-year period for projects to be negotiated and completed.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Eligible applicants include cities, counties, councils of government on behalf of a city or county, and tribal governments.

Certain special districts are eligible, such as transportation districts, metropolitan planning organizations, ports, mass transit districts, parks and recreation districts, and metropolitan service districts.

School districts, and public colleges and universities, may be eligible as part of a joint application with a local government for an otherwise eligible project. Eligible applicants may join together to propose a project, such as a multi-county TSP or multi- city or city-county corridor plan.

Projects that primarily do research or outreach, study an issue, compile data, or inventory information are not eligible for grant funding. TGM grants also cannot fund preliminary engineering, engineering, or construction work.
