Suballocated federal funding

In our role as Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for Greater Kansas City, MARC is soliciting project proposals for Federal Fiscal Years (FFY) 2023-2024 for three Federal Highway Administration funding programs.

This includes funding through these programs:

Anticipated funding

Since these funding years are beyond the term of current federal transportation legislation, some uncertainty remains about the level of funding available for programming by MARC. Considering this, MARC will look to recent historical levels of funding to provide a reasonable estimate of the resources available for programming purposes. For this project solicitation, MARC anticipates the following two-year funding targets; however, these estimates may be subject to change:

Program Kansas anticipated amount to be programmed Missouri anticipated amount to be programmed
Congestion Mitigation/Air Quality (CMAQ)
Surface Transportation Block Grant Program (STBG)
STBG Set-aside (formerly Transportation Alternative Program or TAP)

All of these programs are reimbursement programs. Each program is limited to a maximum of 80 percent federal share and requires a local match of at least 20 percent for any federal funds awarded to any project. Funds awarded to projects through these programs will typically be administered by KDOT or MoDOT through local public agency program procedures.

Application process

This funding opportunity will consist of two phases, an initial screening and a technical evaluation. The dates for each part of this proposal solicitation are as follows. Completion of both phases is required for funding consideration.
