In our role as Metropolitan Planning Organization for Greater Kansas City, MARC solicits proposals for three Federal Highway Administration funding programs:

  • Congestion Mitigation Air Quality (CMAQ)
  • Surface Transportation Block Grant Program (STBG)
  • STBG Set-aside (formerly Transportation Alternatives or TAP)

The application process for the 2025-2026 funding cycle consisted of two phases — a preapplication and initial screening followed by a full application and technical evaluation. The final phase of the call for projects closed on Friday, July 29, 2022. MARC received 118 complete project applications.

Throughout the fall of 2022, the Active Transportation Programming Committee, Air Quality Forum, Kansas and Missouri STP Priorities Committees, and the Regional Transit Coordinating Council will work to develop funding recommendations for these programs.

Public review and comments

To support and inform this work, project application summaries are now available for review and comment by the public. Comments received will be provided to the committees and incorporated into the process of determining funding recommendations.
