Spare the Air Youth is seeking applications to fund high school student-led activities that have the potential to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from sources related to transportation. Spare the Air Youth (STAY) is a program of the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (Air District).

The Grant Program will select School Teams from high schools across the nine-county Bay Area to support activities that encourage student use of active and shared transportation options including walking, biking, carpooling, and taking transit. Selected School Teams will be paired with a technical assistance vendor, which will receive funding to coordinate education and outreach activities and purchase materials on behalf of the School Teams. More information on applicant eligibility and application scoring can be viewed on the STAY website:

Grants for the 2018-19 school year must be submitted no later than 5 p.m. on June 18, 2018.
