Transportation Fund for Clean Air (TFCA)
County Program Manager Fund
Fiscal Year 2017/18 Call for Projects
The San Francisco County Transportation Authority is pleased to announce a call for projects for $724,466 in TFCA County Program Manager Fund programming for the Fiscal Year 2017/18 cycle. Please visit our website at www.sfcta.org/tfcacallforprojects for more information. Applications are due to the Transportation Authority by 5pm on April 28, 2017.
TFCA was established to fund the most effective transportation projects that achieve emission reductions from motor vehicles. Funds are generated from a $4 surcharge on the vehicle registration fee. Forty percent of the funds are set aside for Program Managers for each of the nine counties in the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (Air District). The Transportation Authority is the designated Program Manager for the City and County of San Francisco.
