Transportation & Infrastructure Funding Requests

As part of the process for considering surface transportation authorization legislation, the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure invited Members in the House of Representatives to submit requests for Member Designated Projects. The Transportation and Infrastructure Committee’s process for considering Member Designated Projects is separate and distinct from the House Committee on Appropriations’ process for considering Community Project Funding requests. 

Project Eligibility

Capital projects eligible under title 23, United States Code, and chapter 53 of title 49, United States Code, are eligible for funding requests under Transportation & Infrastructure project submission process.

The best way to ensure project eligibility is to select projects included in the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) or Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), as those projects have already been certified as eligible for Federal Highway Administration or Federal Transit Administration funding and do not require further verification of eligibility.

For projects not in the STIP or TIP, additional documentation is required, including verification about whether the project can be added to the STIP or TIP in a reasonable timeframe, whether the project is on a long-range transportation plan, and verification of eligibility for the proposed activity under title 23 or chapter 53 of title 49 by the relevant federal agency.

Further, project sponsors must demonstrate the ability to fully obligate any funds provided within the obligation window, and must demonstrate a proven ability to finance the remaining costs not funded by the Committee, as well as the required non-federal cost share.

Transparency

All requests submitted by Congressman McNerney to the Transportation & Infrastructure Committee are posted below. Members are also required to certify that neither they nor their immediate family have a financial interest in the requests made. Letters of certification for each request are included below.

Please note:

  • Only legally eligible entities, including state and local units of government, were eligible to request projects. 
  • Project sponsors must be in compliance with all relevant federal laws and regulations.
  • A request submitted by Congressman McNerney to the Committee does NOT guarantee the project will be funded.
