Surface Transportation Block Grant Program

The purpose of the Surface Transportation Block Grant (STBG) program is to promote flexibility in State and local transportation decisions and provides funding to best address State and local transportation needs. This program funding may be used by States and localities for projects to preserve and improve the conditions and performance on any Federal-aid highway and certain local roads, pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure, transit capital, planning projects, and intercity passenger projects.

Local, state, and regional government entities are eligible to apply. The goal of the TMPO’s STBG program funding is to support the implementation of the Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy (Mobility 2035) by enhancing the transportation system to provide mobility, social, and environmental improvements.
