TA Program Structure, Policies, and Procedures
- TA program structure: The program is run through a state-level TE Office. The state uses a competitive selection process, and funds are distributed directly by the state TE Office.
- Who is eligible to apply: County or State agency.
- Application information: The application is available online. Some district offices offer application training.
- Application timeline: The project selection cycle occurs every 3 years. The next call for proposals is in August 2010.
- Application components: Project narrative, budget, and map of the project vicinity.
- Selection criteria: The state does not consider applications for Category 7 (Rehabilitation of Historic Transportation Facilities), Category 8 (Preservation of Rail Corridors and Conversion to Trails), Category 9 (Inventory and Removal of Outdoor Advertising), or Category 12 (Transportation Museums). Selection criteria include: anticipated benefits for the community, anticipated number of users/beneficiaries, environmental impact, fit with comprehensive planning goals, level of public support, linkage to transportation system, maintenance commitment, relationship to other projects, and secured matching funds.
- Application tips: The TE program funds project design, engineering, and construction. To improve chances of selection, the project should meet as many of the evaluation criteria as possible. Applicants should submit a complete application with a clear, precise narrative and a realistic project budget.
- Is there an advisory committee?: Yes, but the committee serves in an advisory capacity only. Final decisions are made by the Director of Transportation.
- Advisory committee members:
- Project award minimum: None.
- Project award maximum: None.
- Typical local match: 20%
- Matching policies: The state does not accept in-kind match.
