Call for Regional Transportation Projects
On March 9, 2023, the Authority unanimously approved the Call for Regional Transportation Projects (CfRTP) for the FY2024-2029 Six Year Program (SYP) Update.
The CfRTP encouraged applicants to consider how well candidate projects support the regional coherence philosophy integral to TransAction. In anticipation of a high demand for regional revenues, the CfRTP further encouraged applicants to highlight how well their candidate projects complement one another and those in adjacent jurisdictions. Applicants are encouraged to highlight how their candidate projects will align with NVTA’s Core Values of Equity, Safety, and Sustainability. All projects considered for regional revenues are subject to a comprehensive regional evaluation process that uses multiple inputs and does not rely on a single metric.
During the application phase (from May 1, 2023 – July 28, 2023), Northern Virginia jurisdictions and agencies are able to apply for NVTA regional funds. Eligible applicants include the region’s counties, cities, five largest towns, transit agencies and other state/regional governmental entities. Individual applicants follow their own local processes for selecting candidate projects and determining how much funding to request. This may include coordinating with other jurisdictions/agencies depending on project location.
During the verification phase (from August 2023 – October 2023), NVTA staff conducts multiple eligibility reviews for each application:
- Virginia Code requires for a project to receive NVTA regional funds, it must be included in TransAction, the long-range transportation plan for Northern Virginia.
- NVTA’s process for accepting applications necessitates that each applicant’s governing body, typically a County Board of Supervisors or a City/Town Council, has officially endorsed them. The requested amount can be either a precise amount or a ‘not to exceed’ value. Applications that do not include a governing body resolution, or that request a higher amount than that stated in the governing body resolution, are ineligible. Projects that are located in multiple jurisdictions require a governing body resolution from all jurisdictions.
