with a small monthly contribution

Three San Diego County projects were among 24 throughout the state to receive grants for community transportation needs assessments, which are intended to help nonprofits, local governments, transit agencies and Native American tribes identify and address transportation issues in their communities.

The projects include a $50,000 grant to the Native American Environmental Protection Coalition for an assessment on the Manzanita Reservation, a $49,515 grant to the county for assessments on two affordable housing properties in Spring Valley and a $18,750 grant to the nonprofit Urban Collaborative Project for assessments in the Chollas View and Ocean View neighborhoods of San Diego.

The grants come from the Clean Mobility Options Voucher Pilot Program, with $1 million awarded to eligible disadvantaged communities throughout the state and an additional $150,000 set aside specifically for Native American tribes.
