Priority Development and Advocacy Committee (PDAC) Process Solicitation

Priority Development and Advocacy Committee (PDAC) Process

The Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission works with the Dayton Regional Priority Development and Advocacy Committee (PDAC), and other organizations throughout the region to identify projects that may be eligible for federal and state funding.  The purpose of this process is to establish a list of mature and eligible projects which benefit the region and to present the list in a timely fashion in a format that is useful to the federal and state elected officials.  The list will be categorized to help guide the officials on regional needs.

The partnership of MVRPC and other regional agencies has successfully obtained over $61 million dollars in funding, through this process. Click for a list of regionally significant projects awarded over the last several years.

MVRPC is the lead agency for review and ranking of Transportation and Government Services projects.  Transportation projects include road, bridge, air, rail, transit, and pedestrian 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 group the projects into three categories: Priority, Recommended, and Reviewed. The list of categorized projects will then be considered by the MVRPC Board structure for final review, adoption, and submittal to the Dayton Regional PDAC.
