Q1: When is the 2020 KTMPO Call for Projects (CFP) open?
The 2020 KTMPO CFP will be open from October 1 through November 13. All projects must be submitted to KTMPO by 12:00 P.M. on Friday, November 13. Any projects submitted after the deadline will not be included in the rescoring process. KTMPO encourages early submission of projects so staff can process applications in a timely manner for consultant scoring.
Q2: Will existing projects in the Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) carry over or will they need to be resubmitted?
All projects currently existing in the MTP outside of the FY21-24 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) will need to be resubmitted in order to be included in the MTP following this Project Call. Any project that is not resubmitted within the Project Call period will be removed from the MTP.
Projects that were previously submitted may use the same information from their original submittal packet but will need to resubmit with a fresh packet. KTMPO staff does recommend that all project narratives be revised to reflect the updated project scoring packet, so that your project can potentially score higher.
Q3: What is the match that local entities are required to provide for Categories 2, 7, and 9?
The current match rates for Categories 2, 7, and 9 are as listed:
- Category 2 – 80% federal / 20% state
- Category 7 – 80% federal / 20% local
- Category 9 – 80% federal / 20% local
Q4: What can funds be used for (e.g. construction costs, design, ROW)?
KTMPO funds can only be used for construction costs of the project. The local entity is responsible for all costs incurred from feasibility or environmental studies, project design, right-of-way (ROW) acquisition and other non-construction costs.
Q5: If only construction costs are eligible for funding, when we provide the “estimated total cost” for the project, are we just providing what is needed for construction?
Yes, the estimated total cost for the project is the just the construction dollar amount.
