Call for projects for PSRC federal transportation funds

Workshops around the region this week

PSRC has released a call for projects for $524 million in federal transportation funding available to the region in 2021 and 2022.

Under the federal transportation act, Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, PSRC is responsible for selecting projects to receive funds from Federal Highway Administration and Federal Transit Administration programs.

It's a competitive, merit-based process based on the policy framework established by the Executive Board, and supports the region’s transportation, economic development and growth planning.  

Project evaluation criteria include:

  • Support for centers
  • Safety, mobility and accessibility
  • Populations served, health and equity
  • Emissions reduction
  • Project readiness

The process distributes funds via regional competitions, as well as through processes established within each of the four counties.

Workshops on the process will be held this week in each county.  

The full schedule and other materials are posted on the PSRC’s project selection web page.
