Projects include Caltrain improvements, highway and street repairs, and pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure upgrades.

Applicants must be residents of San Mateo County and be available to attend committee meetings, which are every Tuesday before the first Thursday of the month at 4:30 p.m. in San Carlos.
