Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement
The Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement (CMAQ) Program provides funds for transportation projects and programs that will contribute to attainment or maintenance of the national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) for ozone, carbon monoxide (CO), and particulate matter (PM).
The CMAQ program supports two important goals of the federal Department of Transportation: improving air quality and relieving congestion. The program provisions emphasize cost-effective emission reduction and congestion mitigation activities when using CMAQ funding.
The application period for the next round of CMAQ funding will open in June of 2025. Interested applicants can find the full guidance and application information on this site or by contacting Ryan Gordon email@example.com for more information.
Transportation Alternatives Set-Aside Program
The Transportation Alternatives Set-Aside (TASA) Program provides funding for programs and projects defined as transportation alternatives, including on- and off-road pedestrian and bicycle facilities; infrastructure projects for improving non-driver access to public transportation and enhanced mobility; environmental mitigation; recreational trail program projects; and, safe routes to school projects.
Though run concurrently, our TA application and grant process is separate from the state PennDOT process. Projects may receive funding from both programs, but will need to fill out two separate applications.
The next round of TA funding will open up in June of 2025. Interested applicants can find the full guidance and application information on the site, or contact Greg Shermeto, firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
