Several resources related to the HRTPO CMAQ/RSTP Project Selection Process include:

  • The Schedule includes the deadline dates for each step of the current Project Selection Process session.
  • The Federal Highway Administration guidance on the CMAQ program. Click HERE to review the guidance as published in the Federal Register.
  • The Federal Highway Administration guidance on the Surface Transportation Program (STP). Click HERE to review the guidance.
  • The HRTPO CMAQ and RSTP Tracking Tables include every project to which the HRTPO has allocated CMAQ or RSTP funds since the beginning of the two funding programs.  Allocation information is shown by fiscal year.
    • The CMAQ Tracking Table shows allocations since FY 1993.  Users are advised of the following issues regarding the CMAQ Tracking Table:
      • In FY 1998 there were no CMAQ funds, but FY 1998 RSTP funds were allocated to “CMAQ-Type” projects.  The amounts shown in the FY 1998 column are 80% federal and 20% state match.  These RSTP allocations are also included in the RSTP Tracking Table.
      • Allocations for FY 1993 – FY 2005 (excluding FY 1998) represent only the federal portion of the allocation.  For any project requiring local funds to match the federal funds, the matching funds were provided by the locality or transit agency.  Local matching funds are not included in the Tracking Table.
      • Starting with FY 2006, the federal share and state match portions of the allocations are shown for each project.
    • The RSTP Tracking Table shows allocations since FY 1992.  Users are advised that all allocations shown are 80% federal and 20% state match.
