Transportation Improvement Program

2020-2023 TIP Call for Projects

The Southwest Washington Regional Transportation Council (RTC) invites public agencies in the Clark County region to submit applications for estimated 2020-2023 federal urban Surface Transportation Block Grant (STBG) and Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) funds.

The STBG-Urban and CMAQ funds are allocated to the Clark County MPO area and programmed by the RTC Board of Directors. The STBG funds can be used for a wide range of transportation purposes within the urban area. The CMAQ funds can be used for transportation projects that will contribute to meeting the attainment of national air quality standards within the Clark County Vancouver Air Quality Maintenance Area (basically the Vancouver, Camas, and Washougal urban areas).

These federal funds require a minimum 13.5% local match. In order to receive federal funds, the applicant must have either a 'Certification Acceptance' (CA) status or have a CA agency agree to manage their project. Also, projects are required to meet regional screening criteria. Project applications are due to RTC on Friday, July 12, 2019.

Project application, accident analysis worksheet, selection criteria, Schedule, Programming Guidebook, and the Regional Transportation Advisory Committee call for projects memo are available in the sidebar.
