A portion of federal transportation funding is allocated at MORPC’s discretion, following an application and selection process. We call these funds MORPC-attributable funds. We work closely with local agencies to prioritize the use of these funds to meet their needs and those of the entire region. They can be used for roads and bridges, public transit, bikeways, sidewalks, and a variety of other activities. The funds come from three federal programs: the Surface Transportation Block Grant Program (STBG), the Congestion Mitigation & Air Quality Improvement Program (CMAQ) and the Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP).
We manage this program under the oversight of our Attributable Funds Committee (AFC). We solicit and evaluate applications for funding from local public agencies every two years. Because of the time it takes to plan, study and design these projects, we try to keep most of the next four years’ worth of funding lined up for projects already in the pipeline.
More information can be viewed on the MORPC-attributable Funding for Transportation webpage.
