Federal Transportation Funding Programs

There are a variety of Federal transportation funding sources authorized in the latest Transportation Act: Fixing America's Surface Transportation (FAST); each with its own set of requirements. Any and all projects and programs inside the Metropolitan Planning Area (Clark and Floyd counties in Indiana, and Bullitt, Jefferson and Oldham counties in Kentucky) that anticipate using Federal transportation funds and/or impact air quality must first be included in the Metropolitan Transportation Plan (Horizon 2035) and the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).  The majority of Federal funding is used at the states' discretion; however, the Transportation Policy Committee is responsible for approving the Plan and TIP before the funds can be utilized. 

The links below provide guidance and additional information for the various FAST Act funding categories under the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA).  Please contact us with any questions.
