Transportation Improvement Program Applications Due
The fiscal year 2014 -2017 Transportation Improvement Program (the TIP) has been approved by the state of Ohio and TMACOG is accepting applications from communities in Lucas and Wood counties to fill the project pipeline for the next two to three years. Applications for Surface Transportation Program (STP) projects are due January 31, 2014.
See the project budget detail form and print the application package here (Word and PDF formats provided). For more information, contact TMACOG Transportation Project Manager David Gedeon at 419.241.9155 ext. 125.
Historically, TMACOG has received approximately $8 million of STP funding annually. Projects have typically been funded at 80 percent of construction costs plus construction engineering. The local sponsoring jurisdiction is responsible for the 20 percent balance of those costs as well as project preparation expenses. Small projects (up to $400,000 federal) with a 50 percent federal / 50 percent local cost share are also eligible. This project solicitation is for Surface Transportation Program (STP) program funding only and does not include projects eligible for Transportation Alternatives Program (e.g., bicycle, pedestrian, Safe Routes to School) or Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) funding. Approved projects will likely be programmed for construction in fiscal years 2018 to 2020.
