Priority Development and Advocacy Committee (PDAC) Process Solicitation

The Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission works with other organizations throughout the Miami Valley to identify projects that may be eligible for federal funding. Through a committee decision, the projects are forwarded on to federal elected officials for deliberation. The purpose of this process is to establish a list of projects which benefit the Dayton Region to be submitted as requests for funding.

The partnership of MVRPC and other regional agencies has successfully obtained over $60 million dollars in federal funding, through this process. Click for a list of regionally significant projects awarded over the last several years.

MVRPC is the lead agency for Transportation and Government Services projects. The Transportation and Government Services review panel will evaluate proposed projects by the importance of the project and by the impact it will have in the Region. The list of recommended priorities will then be sent to the MVRPC Board for final review and adoption followed by submittal to the Dayton Regional PDAC.

PDAC Process

The purpose of this process is to establish a list of projects which benefit the Miami Valley Region.  The intent of this process is to present the list in a timely fashion in a format that is useful to the delegations and contains projects that are mature and eligible for funding.  The list will be categorized to help guide the delegation on Regional needs.

MVRPC is the lead agency for convening the Transportation and Government Services review panel and scoring projects that will be on the PDAC Regional Priorities list.  Transportation projects include surface, air, rail, transit, and pedestrian transportation-related projects.  Government Services projects include criminal justice, first responders, community and neighborhood infrastructure, and K-12 education projects.  The Transportation and Government Services review panel will evaluate proposed projects by the importance of the project and by the impact it will have in the Region.  The list of recommended priorities will then be sent to the MVRPC Board structure for final review and adoption and submittal to The Dayton’s Priority Development and Advocacy Committee.

Below are all documents necessary for project submittal.  Project sponsors who wish to submit Transportation requests are required to self-score their projects using the Transportation Project Evaluation Scoring (PES) system, which is inclusive of the MVRPC Project Readiness Criteria.  Government Services requestors are required to self-score their projects using the Government Services Project Evaluation Scoring (PES) system.
