A short-term list of transportation projects scheduled to receive federal funding within a four-year time horizon
Transportation Improvement Programs (TIP)
Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) are responsible for developing and maintaining a short-term Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) for the metropolitan planning area. The TIP lists all planned highway and transit improvement projects in the metropolitan planning area programmed to receive federal assistance from the Federal Highway Administration and the Federal Transit Administration over a four year time horizon.

Federal regulations require the TIP to be financially constrained and consistent with the anticipated federal funds allocated to the urbanized areas. For each project, the federal funding category, the estimated cost and the fiscal year funds will be needed are listed. The project schedule is broken down by implementation phase.
The NVCOG planning region is divided by two metropolitan planning areas. Because of this, the NVCOG develops and maintains two separate TIPs, one for each MPO. The priority projects included in the TIPs are advanced from the MTP. The TIPs are developed in collaboration with CTDOT, public transit operators and member municipalities.
What was funded in 2018?
Each year, millions of dollars of federal funds from the USDOT are obligated in support of the MPOs transportation improvement program. The following document contains tables listing projects that received federal funds in Federal Fiscal Year 2018 (October 1, 2017 – September 30 2018) through the metropolitan planning process.
