The call for projects for PSRC’s 2017 Rural Town Centers and Corridors Program is also open. Visit the application page for more information, including an overview of the process, the schedule, and other resources.

PSRC conducts competitive processes to distributing funding from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) to priority transportation projects throughout the region. PSRC’s project selection processes follow the key principles of being competitive, transparent, fair and equitable, and implementing regional policies.

Several processes are conducted on different timeframes, but all processes are conducted to address both regional and local needs, and PSRC works with jurisdictions and organizations across the region for a broad level of participation.

Project Selection Criteria

Project evaluation criteria are specific to each process, but include such regional policies as:
       •  support for designated regional or local centers and the corridors that serve them
       •  provision of multimodal transportation options
       •  improvements to safety and mobility
       •  support for diverse populations
       •  improvements to air quality
