Member-Designated Transportation Projects

The House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure (T&I) plans to advance surface transportation authorization legislation later this spring, building on H.R. 2, the “Moving Forward Act,” from the 116th Congress. Chairman Peter DeFazio announced that the T&I Committee will formally accept requests for projects from House Members.

The T&I Committee process for member projects for consideration is separate and distinct from the House Committee on Appropriations’ process for Community Project Funding requests. Projects funded through the surface transportation authorization will be funded directly from the Highway Trust Fund, and they do not require a separate or subsequent appropriation.

Please note:

  • Congresswoman Lofgren did NOT accept requests for projects outside of CA-19.
  • A request submitted through the website does NOT guarantee the project will be selected.
  • The selection of a project does NOT guarantee it will be funded by the T&I Committee.

More information on the process, including an Instruction Booklet with detailed step-by-step guidance, can be found on the Transportation and Infrastructure Appropriations Committee’s page here.

If you have any questions or concerns about submissions or the overall process, please reach out to Arlet.Abrahamian@mail.house.gov.

Project Eligibility

Capital projects eligible under title 23, United States Code, and chapter 53 of title 49, United States Code, are eligible for funding requests under T&I’s project submission process.

The best way to ensure project eligibility is to select projects included in the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) or Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), as those projects have already been certified as eligible for Federal Highway Administration or Federal Transit Administration funding and do not require further verification of eligibility.

For projects not in the STIP or TIP, additional documentation we be required, including verification about whether the project can be added to the STIP or TIP in a reasonable timeframe, whether the project is on a long-range transportation plan, and verification of eligibility for the proposed activity under title 23 or chapter 53 of title 49 by the relevant federal agency.

Transparency

The final requests selected and submitted to the T&I Committee are posted on this page and will be posted on the Committee's page. Members are required to certify that neither they nor their immediate family have a financial interest in the CPF requests made.
