Application Process for Federal Funding
The annual application cycle for the Roadway Program ended February 2017. The next Call-for-Projects is anticipated in October 2017.
SERTPO plays a role with local-lead, federally-funded road projects. SERTPO will issue a Call-for-Projects along with application due dates, rating criteria and further instructions. Local governments submit their preliminary applications for projects to SERTPO. Road projects must have the eligible functional classification. Once the preliminary applications are received, feasibiity reviews are held with the local governments. Following the feasibility reviews, final applications are prepared and submitted at a later date with presentations held at a future SERTPO meeting. SERTPO rates and prioritizes its roadway projects and forwards its recommendatins to NMDOT Roswell. Once the local NMDOT office makes its selection(s), those projects are programmed into the STIP. STIP projects must be approved by the State Transportation Commission, the Federal Highway Administration and the Federal Transit Administration.
