Congestion Mitigation Air Quality (CMAQ)

The primary purpose of the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program (CMAQ) is to fund projects and programs in air quality non-attainment and maintenance areas for ozone, carbon monoxide (CO), and particulate matter which reduce transportation related emissions. View MVRPC’s most recently adopted STP/CMAQ/TA Policy. Please see our CMAQ Funding Fact Sheet for an overview of the CMAQ funding program.

2018 CMAQ Project Solicitation

On September 6, 2018 the Board formally authorized MVRPC staff to solicit qualified member jurisdictions for new transportation projects using MVRPC regionally controlled federal funds (STP. CMAQ or TA).  Funding for CMAQ projects is primarily anticipated for availability in SFY2024 and SFY2025. On September 6, 2018, the MVRPC Board of Directors also adopted revised Policies and Procedures for these federal funds.  The policies are used in selecting and programming projects into the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).  The policies include a list of eligible projects.  Once submitted, applications for proposed new projects will be reviewed and evaluated for possible inclusion in the TIP.

Completed applications must be received at MVRPC by 1:00 p.m. October 10, 2018.  When compiling an application, be sure to include all materials requested in the application along with any additional information you feel helps describe the project and its benefits. If you have any questions, please email Paul Arnold or call (937) 223-6323.
