Regional Solicitation

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.
