In August 2016 the NC Capital Area MPO’s Executive Board opened a call for projects to identify and program available FFY 2018 Locally Administered Projects Program (LAPP) funds. The call for projects resulted in submission of 25 Eligible Projects for consideration. The Executive Board also approved a target modal investment mix of 65 percent roadway, 20 percent bicycle & pedestrian, and 15 percent transit to help guide development of a recommended FFY 2018 investment program totaling $23.5 million, including CMAQ. Projects were reviewed for funding eligibility and scored based on the adopted LAPP prioritization criteria by CAMPO staff.
At the recommendation of the LAPP Selection Committee and Technical Coordinating Committee, on February 15, 2017, the Executive Board adopted the FFY18 LAPP Investment Program and Modified Modal Investment Mix, which maximizes the total amount of available funds for programming at slightly more than $25.7M. All FFY18 projects were funded at the level requested.
