FY2020-2025 Six Year Program

Call for Regional Transportation Projects

On July 1, 2019, the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority posted a Call for Regional Transportation Projects for FY2024 and FY2025 regional revenue consideration as part of the FY2020-2025 Six Year Program Update. The Authority expects to allocate at least $400 million towards projects across the Northern Virginia region when the Six Year Program Update is adopted in June 2020. Please check out additional details in a series of short videos that will be posted here to keep you informed about the Six Year Program Update review process, each step of the way.

Submitted Regional Transportation Project Applications and Available Funding

On October 10, 2019, the Authority was presented the latest update on the FY2020-2025 Six Year Program, including an overview of total applications received. Thirteen Northern Virginia jurisdictions and agencies submitted 46 applications to NVTA for funding consideration, with a combined request of approximately $1.7 billion. NVTA expects to allocate at least $400 million on projects throughout Northern Virginia when the Six Year Program Update is adopted in June 2020. Although $400 million is a significant amount of money, this funding cycle will likely be NVTA’s most oversubscribed program to date. To view a summary of project applications and funding requests by each jurisdiction and agency, please see the tables below.
