Call for Projects Recommendations: Federal Transit Administration Funding Programs 

The North Central Texas Council of Governments issued a Call for Projects to competitively award Federal Transit Administration funding from two programs that support transportation services for seniors, persons with disabilities, and low-income individuals. Approximately $4.9 million in funding was available to award in the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington and Denton-Lewisville Urbanized areas. Staff will present recommendations to award five projects the available federal funding.

Regional Air Quality and Management & Operations Program

As development of the 2017-2020 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) begins, a determination will be made regarding which of the Regional Transportation Council’s (RTC) ongoing air quality and management/operations projects should be continued, which ones can be discontinued, and which programs/projects of this nature should be considered for inclusion in the new TIP. Staff will present efforts to extend both new and existing RTC air quality and management/operations projects and programs. Additional intersection improvement projects are being proposed for funding as well.

Review of Legacy Transportation Projects Funded, But Not Yet Implemented

Transportation partners, local governments and staff are reviewing a list of projects funded 10 or more years ago, but not yet implemented. The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a near-term list of funded transportation projects, and staff is developing the list of projects on which funding is expected to be spent between 2017 and 2020. The intent is to ensure

high-priority, ready-to-proceed projects receive funding, and to determine if older, lower priority projects should be canceled. Staff will review the list of legacy projects and steps required of the implementing agencies for projects to continue to be funded.
