1 ACTIVE TRANSPORTATION PROGRAMMING COMMITTEE Project Funding and Scoring Criteria Section I. Project meets minimum MARC/State DOT/Federal DOT Requirements STBGP Set-Aside Project Eligibility The Surface Transportation Block Grant Program (STBGP) provides flexible funding to address State and local transportation needs. This includes dedicated funding for projects defined as STBGP Set-Aside projects, formerly referred to as Transportation Enhancements Activities (TE) or Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) projects. To be eligible for STBGP Set-Aside funds, an application must meet the following criteria: 1) Relate to surface transportation in terms of function, proximity, and impact. Function The project will serve as a functional component of the transportation system. This can include a bicycle and pedestrian path, the provision of bicycle racks or benches for pedestrians, etc. Proximity The project is located within the immediate vicinity of the transportation system and may be visible to the general public, such as the acquisition of scenic easements or landscaping. Proximity alone is not enough to establish the relationship to surface transportation. Impact The project has a physical impact on the transportation system, such as retrofitting an existing highway by creating a wetland to filter runoff from the highway. Projects with this type of transportation relationship are usually associated with ongoing or planned highway projects. ) Include at least one of the federally designated STBGP Set-Aside activities that MARC has condensed into five categories: I. Active Transportation Infrastructure Projects Infrastructure projects both on-road and off-road related to bicycle, pedestrian and other non-motorized forms of transportation. Recreational Trails Program projects Safe Routes to School infrastructure-related projects II. Historic Preservation/Archaeological Projects Historic preservation and rehabilitation of historic transportation facilities. Archaeological activities relating to impacts from implementation of transportation projects 1. III. Transportation Aesthetics and Scenic Values Inventory, control, or removal of outdoor advertising. Construction of turnouts, overlooks, and viewing areas. IV. Environmental Mitigation and Vegetation Management Environmental mitigation projects including pollution prevention and pollution abatement projects and mitigation to: o Address stormwater management, control, and water pollution prevention or o abatement related to highway construction or due to highway runoff. Reduce vehicle-caused wildlife mortality or to restore and maintain connectivity among terrestrial or aquatic habitats. Vegetation management practices in transportation rights-of-way to improve roadway safety, prevent against invasive species, and provide erosion control. 1 Must be eligible under title 3, U.S.C. Includes activities described in sections 113(b)(11), 38(a), and 39 of title 3, U.S.C. 1

2 V. Safe Routes to School Non-Infrastructure Projects Safety and educational projects targeting children in Kindergarten through 8 th grade 3. 3) Project applications must be submitted by an eligible entity under section 133 of title 3, U.S.C. This includes: a. Local governments b. Regional transportation authorities c. Transit agencies d. Natural resource or public land agencies e. School district, local education agencies, or schools f. Tribal governments g. Nonprofit entity responsible for the administration of local transportation safety programs h. Any other local or regional entity with responsibility for oversight of transportation or recreational trails (other than a metropolitan planning organization [MPO] or a State agency) that the State determines to be eligible. Note: State DOTs and MPOs are not eligible project sponsors for STBGP Set-Aside funds; however, they may partner with any eligible entity project sponsor to carry out a project. Nonprofit organizations not eligible under section 133 of title 3, U.S.C. are eligible to partner with any eligible entity on a STBGP Set-Aside project, if State or local requirements permit. All STBGP Set-Aside projects will be evaluated for adherence with the MARC Complete Streets Policy, available at: CMAQ Project Eligibility The Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program (CMAQ) provides funding for transportation programs and projects likely to contribute to the attainment or maintenance of a national ambient air quality standard, with a high level of effectiveness in reducing air pollution. While there are a number of eligible activities for the CMAQ program, the Active Transportation Programming Committee is only responsible for overseeing CMAQ projects categorized as Bicycle/Pedestrian Projects. This includes Outreach/Other projects related to bicyclists/pedestrians. Other CMAQ project categories (e.g., Transit, Alternative Fuel, and Outreach/Other non-related to bicyclists/pedestrians) will be managed by MARC s Air Quality Forum, a modal committee responsible for regional air quality issues. Any government (i.e., local, regional, or state) or public agency in the MARC planning area is eligible to apply for CMAQ funding. Not-for-profits and private entities may apply for funds if an eligible public entity agrees to serve as the primary project sponsor. To be eligible for CMAQ funds through the Active Transportation Programming Committee, an application must meet the following criteria: 1) All federal eligibility, based on the most recent guidance of the CMAQ Program, must be met. Available at: ) Must be a transportation project that meets the federally designated CMAQ activity that MARC has categorized as: Bicycle Pedestrian Projects Construction of bicycle/pedestrian facilities (paths, bike racks, support facilities, etc.) that are not exclusively recreational and provide a reduction in single-occupant vehicle travel. Non-infrastructure outreach projects related to bicycle/pedestrian safety. Establishing and funding State bicycle/pedestrian coordinator positions for promoting and facilitating non-motorized transportation modes through public education, safety programs, etc. (limited to one full-time position per State). 3 Traffic education, enforcement, and encouragement activities must take place within approximately two miles of a primary or middle school (grades K-8).

3 3) Must generate an emissions reduction. ) Must be located in or benefit a nonattainment or maintenance area within the Kansas City region. All CMAQ projects will be evaluated for adherence with the MARC Complete Streets Policy, available at: STBGP Set-Aside Project Funding, Budgeting and Programming STBGP functions as a reimbursement program; therefore, it s important the applicant demonstrate financial feasibility while carrying their STBGP Set-Aside project(s) forward to completion in a timely manner. Project sponsors will assume financial responsibility for the entire project pending reimbursement, minus their portion (i.e., local match) of the eligible costs. It s important that: a. The STBGP Set-Aside project goes beyond activities customarily incorporated into motor vehicle roadway, highway and transit projects. b. The STBGP Set-Aside funding request does NOT include request for funds to support preliminary engineering and design work. c. Each STBGP Set-Aside project budget includes the required local match of at least 0 percent, available within the project s timeframe. d. STBGP Set-Aside projects be completed with the STBGP Set-Aside funds requested and the matching funds pledged by the applicant. e. STBGP Set-Aside project cost estimates are reasonable and of sufficient detail to ensure successful project implementation. f. Project sponsors demonstrate adequate plans for and consider ongoing maintenance costs for at least years or the project s expected life as STBGP Set-Aside funds can NOT be used for routine maintenance and operations. g. Entities submitting multiple applications, or jurisdictions with multiple projects in their communities, identify and prioritize projects. h. STBGP Set-Aside projects categorized as Historic Preservation/Archaeological Projects must submit a letter of eligibility determination from the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) certifying that the project is listed, or eligible to be listed, on the National Register of Historic Places before any monies may be reimbursed. STBGP Set-Aside Project Funding Restraints Project sponsors are encouraged to limit project funding requests to $00,000 per project. CMAQ Project Funding, Budgeting and Programming CMAQ functions as a reimbursement program; therefore, it s important the applicant demonstrate financial feasibility while carrying the project forward to completion in a timely manner. Project sponsors will assume financial responsibility for the entire project pending reimbursement, minus their portion (i.e., local match) of the eligible costs. It s important that: a. Funding for the CMAQ project NOT be used for purposes of routine program implementation, meeting any legal mandate, or completion of work that should have been completed under a prior grant or cooperative agreement. b. Each CMAQ project budget includes the required local match of at least 0 percent, available within the project s timeframe. c. CMAQ project applications include a detailed budget identifying the source and amount of matching funds. d. CMAQ projects be completed with the CMAQ funds requested and the matching funds pledged by the applicant. e. CMAQ project cost estimates are reasonable and of sufficient detail to ensure successful project implementation. Emission reduction represents a group of terms. CMAQ-funded projects or programs must reduce CO, ozone precursors (NOx and VOCs), PM., PM, or PM precursor (e.g., NOx) emissions from transportation. 3

4 CMAQ Project Funding Restraints Infrastructure projects must exceed $0,000. Non-infrastructure projects must exceed $,000. Public Support For both STBGP Set-Aside and CMAQ project applications, it s important that a public involvement process can be demonstrated and documentation for support is included in the supplementary narrative. Projects are expected to be available for public use in perpetuity and should be consistent with local comprehensive, land use, and transportation plans. Section II. Project scoring criteria STBGP Set-Aside Project Scoring A number of federally designated programs and projects are eligible for STBGP Set-Aside funding. MARC has condensed these activities into five categories: Active Transportation Infrastructure Projects, Historic Preservation/Archaeological Projects, Transportation Aesthetics and Scenic Values, Environmental Mitigation and Vegetation Management, and Safe Routes to School Non-Infrastructure Projects. STBGP Set-Aside projects are scored based on the particular category an application is categorized under. The scoring criteria and point system are based on a process that reflects the goals of Transportation Outlook 00, and a system that the former Kansas Transportation Enhancements Committee and Missouri Transportation Enhancements Committee used to evaluate project applications. Each category has a rating system based on a total of 0 points. These ratings and the resulting project rankings are intended to provide information to MARC s Active Transportation Programming Committee to aid their decision-making process for developing funding recommendations to MARC s Total Transportation Policy Committee. Note: The project scores determined through this process provide information about how each project relates to regional transportation policy goals and objectives, and are not the sole factor for determining funding recommendations.

16 CMAQ Project Scoring A number of federally designated programs and projects are eligible for CMAQ funding; however, the Active Transportation Programming Committee is responsible for scoring projects that fall within CMAQ s Bicycle/Pedestrian category. Other CMAQ project categories will be scored by separate modal committees. The scoring criteria and point system are based on a system that the former Congestion Mitigation/Air Quality Committee now known as the Air Quality Forum used to evaluate project applications. The Bicycle/Pedestrian category has a rating system based on a total of 0 points. This rating and the resulting project rankings are intended to provide information to MARC s Active Transportation Programming Committee to aid in their decision-making process for developing funding recommendations to MARC s Total Transportation Policy Committee. Note: The project scores determined through this process are not the sole factor for determining funding recommendations. Bicycle/Pedestrian Projects A. Emission Reduction 3 Points Lifetime emissions reductions (kg) 3 possible 0-1,99 0 1,00-3,99 7 3,00-7,99 1 7,00-1,99 1 1,00-19,999 8 >0,000 3 B. Cost Effectiveness 3 Points Cost effectiveness (CMAQ funding/kg) 3 possible > C. Vehicle Miles Traveled Reduction 1 Points VMT reduction/project lifetime 1 possible , ,000 or more 1 D. Land Use/Category Specific (All Projects) 1 Points Supports redevelopment, infill development, and mixed-use development in existing town centers, activity centers, established neighborhoods and/or a ¼ mile area around transit stations currently served by public facilities by constructing new or improving existing transportation facilities within these areas. 1. Land Use/Category Specific (Infrastructure Projects Only) Increases connectivity. possible Extends a current bike path/trail/system 1 Provides a missing link Improves access to public transit. Land Use/Category Specific (Outreach/Other Projects Only) Supplements or enhances the benefits of previously funded CMAQ projects to avoid duplication or incompatibility. Bicycle/Pedestrian Projects Total Possible 0 Points 16

17 Section III. Project committee ranking Committee ranking is the final step in developing a project score. This process allows the Active Transportation Programming Committee members the ability to increase a score by as much as points or as little as none. The committee members will be asked to rank all projects in order based on the total number of projects received. The ranking will be done in reverse order with the last project receiving a rank of 1. Ballots are recorded and the average rank is recorded. The total points possible will be divided by the total number of applications to produce a rank factor. This factor will be multiplied by the average of each project s rank. Scores will be rounded to the nearest whole number. For example: STBGP Set-Aside project applications / = a factor of 0. A project with an average rank of.6 is multiplied by a factor of 0. would score.77 additional points. Rounded up to the nearest whole number, that equals additional points. Therefore, if a project initially scored an 88 on the composite score, its final score would be (88+ = 93) 93 out of a possible 1 points. 17
