Member-Designated Transportation Projects

The House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure is in the process of working on a surface transportation authorization legislation this spring to build on H.R. 2, the Moving Forward Act, which passed the House during the 116th Congress. As part of this legislation, the T&I Committee is accepting requests for projects from House Members. 
 

Projects funded through the surface transportation authorization legislation will be funded directly from the Highway Trust Fund. 
 

Congressman Pappas is committed to advocating for the needs of New Hampshire’s First Congressional District as part of this legislation.
 

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 is 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.
 

Further, project sponsors must demonstrate the ability to fully obligate any funds provided within the obligation window, and must demonstrate a proven ability to finance the remaining costs not funded by the Committee, as well as the required non-federal cost share.
 

Transparency

All requests submitted to Congressman Pappas’s Office were reviewed by a Community Advisory Board, asked to demonstrate community need, and are posted below for review. Additionally, Congressman Pappas has certified that he nor his immediate family have any financial interests in the requests made.
