How: a justification of why the project is eligible is required, including what TE category the project falls under and how it relates to surface transportation. Also, the source for matching funds must be identified.

Selection criteria include: anticipated benefits for the community, anticipated number of users/beneficiaries, whether the project is eligible under multiple TE categories, level of public support, linkage to transportation system, maintenance commitment, relationship to other projects, and secured matching funds.
