the option you are looking for is
-sasinitialfolder '<my project folder goes here>'

proc options define value option=sasinitialfolder;run;

the hyphen means you can only set this option:
When Can Set: Session startup (command line or config) only

so either of :
- - - SAS.bat - - -
"<sasroot>/sas.exe" %* -sasinitialfolder '.'
rem Win .bat file: percent star means pass all parameters to sas

or (recommended) in your project folder:
- - - sasv9.cfg - - -
-sasinitialfolder '<my project folder goes here>'
