Call for projects for PSRC federal transportation funds

Workshops around the region next week

PSRC has released a call for projects for $550 million in federal transportation funding available to the region in 2023 and 2024.

Under the federal 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 housing, employment and the development plans of a center
  • Health and equity
  • Improved accessibility, circulation, mobility and provision of a range of modes
  • Active transportation
  • Safety and security
  • Emissions reduction
  • Project readiness and financial feasibility

The process distributes funds via regional competitions, earned share distributions for transit agencies, as well as through processes established within each of the four counties.

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

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