TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM (TIP) FY 2020-2025
Who Participates?

CUUATS member agencies and organizations applying for federal or state grants are the primary contributors to the TIP. The public has a 30-day comment period for reviewing the draft document before it is approved by the CUUATS Technical and Policy committees.

How are Projects Selected?
CUUATS member agencies submit their lists of projects, which must reference other participating agencies and each agency’s project cost share. For those projects seeking federal Surface Transportation Block Grant Program (STBGP) funds, projects must be evaluated using the CUUATS Project Priority Review Guidelines which score projects according to how well they reflect federal transportation goals and the goals in the CUUATS Long Range Transportation Plan.
Listing of Federally Obligated Projects
The United States Code of Federal Regulations outlines the requirement for Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) to publish an annual listing of obligated projects for which Federal funds have been given in the preceding year, including a listing of pedestrian and bicycle projects.
