Allocating federal funds to meet local and regional transportation needs
Every two years, the Regional Solicitation process allocates federal transportation funds to locally-initiated projects to meet regional transportation needs.
As the region’s federally-designated Metropolitan Planning Organization,
the Council works with the Transportation Advisory Board (TAB)
to review and allocate these funds, using an objective, data-driven, transparent process.
