Transportation Funding

Central to its role as the Metropolitan Planning Organization for the Kansas City region, the Mid-America Regional Council is responsible for facilitating the development of a long-range transportation plan that guides the investment of federal funds for surface transportation projects and programs.

The current plan, Connected KC 2050, outlines a vision, desired outcomes and strategies for our regional transportation system, and provides direction for the distribution of funding to local jurisdictions and organizations from four federal funding programs. The plan also guides other federal, state and local transportation investments in the region
