FY25 Planning Grant

Eastgate Regional Council of Governments offers a Planning Grant to assist municipalities with planning efforts that:

  • Provides capital capacity for local communities to conduct planning efforts
  • Advances the improvement of multimodal transportation infrastructure across the region
  • Achieves community visions as related to transportation and land use needs that promote future economic growth

The Planning Grant should further the following principles:

  • Increase active transportation options to connect people and places
  • Promote Complete Street principles to create vibrant and safe places for all users
  • Leverage transportation projects to develop places which support active transportation and complete streets through land use and design
  • Preserve existing infrastructure (Capital Improvement Plan)
  • Support economic development
  • Enhance quality of life in the Mahoning Valley

Eastgate’s goal is to award planning grants to communities and implementing governmental agencies that have legal authority to sponsor federal-aid capital improvement projects (see eligibility on page 5 of the planning grant document).
