The Southern California Association of Governments' (SCAG) Transportation Finance Program seeks to optimize the region's transportation systems by planning for the long-term financial needs of the region. SCAG is working to address funding shortfalls by researching and promoting innovative financing techniques, and developing strategies for the Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), so that the greatest amount of transportation dollars are available to the region. In doing so, all forms of potential funding for transportation are analyzed and evaluated by SCAG.
