MORPC-attributable Funding for Transportation

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). The committee recommended revisions to improve the project selection process for 2020, and we adopted them on March 12.

2020-2021 Application Funding Cycle

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.

In July of 2020 MORPC received 27 project updates for outstanding funding commitment, and in October of 2020 MORPC received 31 applications for new funding commitments.

Project updates for outstanding funding commitments were due on July 10, 2020. A summary of these updates can be found here:

Final applications for new funding requests were received on October 9, 2020. A summary of these final applications can be found here:
