TCC Round 5 Program Guidelines

The California Strategic Growth Council has released draft versions of the Round 5 TCC Program Guidelines and the TCC Mapping Tool and invites public comment. The Final Round 5 Guidelines, Notice of Funding Availability, and Applications are expected to be released in February and March 2023. Please reach out to with any questions.

The Guidelines

SGC invites public comment on the Round 5 TCC Draft Guidelines and the supplementary Key Changes and Policy Discussion Document. The Key Changes document contains a summary of the significant changes in Round 5, as well as additional proposals that TCC staff may adopt in the Final Guidelines. Comments on both documents will inform the Round 5 FY22-23 TCC Final Guidelines, which are expected to be released in February 2023.

The public comment period for the Round 5 TCC Draft Guidelines (“Draft Guidelines”) is November 18, 2022–December 21, 2022. SGC requests written comments on the Draft Guidelines and the additional proposals in the Key Changes and Policy Discussion document by December 21, 2022.

Interested parties may submit comments via email to the TCC inbox, Comments should include references to the specific sections of the Draft Guidelines. SGC staff will also be hosting virtual drop-in sessions for stakeholders to have time for direct conversations on any topic of their choice. These dates will be announced through the program’s announcement list.
