Transportation Financing

It takes a lot of money to keep the transportation infrastructure of the Miami Valley in tip top shape. Funding for new interchanges, fixing bridges, re-surfacing roads, paving bike paths, building sidewalks, and helping seniors find rides all depends on a steady flow of funding.

FAST Act Federal Transportation Act, MAP-21

MVRPC monitors the Federal Transportation Act for funding options. The Surface Transportation Program helps with road projects, Congestion Mitigation Air Quality program funds alternative modes and projects that reduce congestion such as signal interconnections. Transportation Alternatives program primarily funds non-motorized transportation needs. MVRPC works with local agencies to solicit for federal funding and has been involved in distributing federal stimulus funding.

Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (Public Law 112-141), was signed into law by President Obama on July 6, 2012.  Funding surface transportation programs at over $105 billion for fiscal years (FY) 2013 and 2014, MAP-21 is the first long-term highway authorization enacted since 2005.  MAP-21 builds on the initiatives established in the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU), Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21) and the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 (ISTEA), which were the last major authorizing legislations for surface transportation. This new MAP-21 Act is a milestone for the U.S. economy and the Nation’s surface transportation program. By transforming the policy and programmatic framework for investments to guide the system’s growth and development, MAP-21 creates a streamlined and performance-based surface transportation program and builds on many of the highway, transit, bike, and pedestrian programs and policies established in 1991.  For more information please visit www.fhwa.dot.gov/map21/
