TPF FY23 SERTPO Timeline

TPF is a state funded program with annual application cycles.  Local and  tribal governments are eligible to apply.  NMDOT issues the Call-for-Projects, which provides eligible project requirements, project prioritization criteria and application package requirements.  Application packages from the southeast region are submitted to SERTPO, who rates the project applications and submits its recommendations to NMDOT.  An advantageous feature of the program to applicants is the low local match of five percent.  For additional information, please contact Mary Ann Burr (SNMEDD) at  (575) 624-6131.

Local Government Road Fund

State-funded, local-lead transportation projects are handled out the NMDOT District 2 Roswell office through its Local Government Road Fund (LGRF).  The LGRF includes the Municipal Arterial Program (MAP), the County Arterial Program (CAP), the School Bus Route (SBR) and the Municipal, County and School District Cooperative (CO-OP) Programs.  For additional information, please contact Libby Coslin (NMDOT District 2) at (575) 840-3373.

Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP)

Currently, there is no call for local projects for the New Mexico Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP).  Further safety information may be found at NMDOT Highway Safety Improvement Program.

Statewide Transportation Improvements Program (STIP)

eSTIP is now available to the public, providing access to the STIP and the ability to search projects by Control Number, County, Lead Agency, Project Type and Funding Type.  The STIP is a NMDOT planning tool that lists State and local-lead transportation projects programmed for the upcoming fiscal years.  Further STIP information may be found at NMDOT Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP).

Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ)

Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement (CMAQ) Program is federally funded and administered by the NMDOT Multimodal Planning and Programs Bureau.  CMAQ funding supports surface transportation projects or related projects that contribute to air quality improvements and congestion relief.  Funding cycles are approximately every two years and application requirements are provided in a CMAQ Non-Mandatory Program Guide.

Roadway Program

Federal funding for the Roadway program is provided by the NMDOT District 2 Roswell office on a discretionary basis.  There has been less activity with the onset of the state-funded TPF program, with its last funding in 2019.  Road projects must have eligible functional classification.  SERTPO will issue a Call-for-Projects and provides an application package that includes deadlines, roadway criteria that includes federal planning factors, scoring sheet and points assigned to each category and further instructions.  SERTPO rates and prioritizes the applications and submits its recommendations to NMDOT District 2.
