KATS FY 2020-2023 Call for Projects

This is the  KATS Surface Transportation Program (STP), National Highway Performance Program (NHPP), Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ), and Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) call for projects for the development of the FY 2020-2023 Transportation Improvement Program.  The deadline for submission is November 2, 2018.

Funding projections per year for FY 2021, 2022, and 2023 are:

Surface Transportation Program (STP):  $3,089,067
National Highway Performance Program (NHPP):  $513,154
Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ): $505,299
