The Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization (HRTPO), the metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for the Hampton Roads metropolitan planning area, is responsible for selecting and allocating funds to transportation projects under two federal funding sources – the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) improvement program and the Regional Surface Transportation Program (RSTP).

Although official CMAQ and RSTP project submissions must come from local governments, local transit agencies, or state transportation agencies, the citizens of Hampton Roads are invited to recommend project ideas to be considered for submission by those entities.  All project ideas sent in by the public will be acknowledged and forwarded to the appropriate locality, local transit agency, or state transportation agency for consideration and possible submission.

To help ensure that the necessary information is included with all project ideas sent in by the public, a one-page form has been prepared.  To access the form, please click on the following link:

CMAQ/RSTP Form for Public

For information on the CMAQ/RSTP Project Selection Process, including guidance on eligible projects, please click on the following link:
