TIP Project Solicitation

A/GFTC is currently updating its Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), the five-year roster of planned federally-funded investments in the surface transportation network. We are conducting a solicitation for federal aid – eligible highway, bridge, public transportation, and bicycle and pedestrian improvement projects to be considered for programming for Federal Fiscal Years 2022/23 through 2026/27.

Project applications must originate from municipalities that own and operate qualifying transportation infrastructure, so please contact your municipal elected officials or A/GFTC staff if there are specific issues or project concepts that you would like to see addressed in the capital program. A copy of the application form is available at this link: https://agftc.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/12/AGFTC-TIP-Project-Application_2022.pdf
