PDA and PPA Grant Application Process Open; Webinar Wednesday Dec. 14

PDA and PPA grants open

The application window for Priority Development Area (PDA) and Priority Production Area (PPA) grants is now open until Feb. 23, 2023.

Join ABAG/MTC staff on Wednesday, Dec. 14, from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. for a webinar highlighting these funding opportunities. Sign up for the webinar here.

MTC will be taking proposals for a total of $17 million in available funding for planning and technical assistance efforts for PDAs and PPAs. Visit the PDA Grant webpage or PPA Grant webpage for more information and to start an application.  

To meet the region’s long-range goals of reduced greenhouse gas emissions and more affordable housing for all, MTC funds plans and offers technical assistance to locally nominated PDAs.

Plan Bay Area 2050 – the region’s long-range plan – includes over 35 locally nominated Priority Production Areas from 25 jurisdictions as “growth geographies.” The plan's Economy Element includes a strategy to retain and invest in key industrial lands – including PPAs – as part of a broader effort to shift the location of jobs and achieve a better jobs-housing balance throughout the Bay Area.
