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).

Policies for Managing MORPC-Attributable Funds

The committee recommended revisions to improve the project-selection process in February 2022 and solicited public comments on the Draft Policies for Managing MORPC-Attributable Funds through March 18, 2022.

MORPC’s Transportation Policy Committee will consider the Policies for final approval in May.
