Directing the City Manager to cause specific projects to be submitted to the Mid-America Regional Council (MARC) as applications for FY 2019 & 2020 Surface Transportation Program (STP), Congestion Mitigation/Air Quality Program (CMAQ) and STP Set-aside (formerly Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP)) funding.

WHEREAS, MARC, in its role as metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for Greater Kansas City, is soliciting project proposals for Federal Fiscal Years 2019 & 2020 for three Federal Highway Administration funding programs (STP, CMAQ & TAP); and

WHEREAS, each of the three programs is eligible to fund a wide but specific range of surface transportation projects. Eligible project types for this call for projects will include, but are not limited to: Active transportation including bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure; alternative fuel and diesel retrofit strategies to improve regional air quality; public transportation equipment, facilities, technology and new services; outreach strategies to improve regional air quality; roadway and bridge capacity, management, operations, preservation and traffic flow; transportation safety; and

WHEREAS, eligibility for STP is also related to the Federal Roadway Function Classification system and STP funds can be used within the Kansas City MPO boundary on all facilities functionally classified as urban collector or higher; and

WHEREAS, Transportation Outlook 2040, the region’s long-range transportation plan adopted in 2010, supports this regional plan by envisioning and setting goals for a safe, balanced, regional multimodal transportation system that is coordinated with land-use planning, supports equitable access to opportunities, and protects the environment. Project proposals submitted for consideration will be evaluated based on how closely they align with the policy goals of the plan; and

 WHEREAS, on December 4, 2015, President Obama signed into law the Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act, or "FAST Act" which authorizes federal surface transportation programs through FFY 2020 and included the STP, CMAQ and STP Set-aside programs. MARC anticipates the following funding targets for the Missouri side of the region in FY 2109 & 2020: CMAQ at $5.3M, STP at $34M and STP Set-aside at $3M; and

WHEREAS, MARC region has limited applicant requested project submittals to not exceed 105% of the eligible funds in a program; and

WHEREAS, all of these programs are reimbursement programs. Each program is limited to a maximum of 80% federal share and requires a local match of at least 20% for any federal funds awarded to any project; and

WHEREAS, MARC will collect a non-refundable fee equivalent to 0.5% of any federal funds awarded to projects through this programming cycle and sponsors of projects awarded funding will be invoiced for this fee in early 2017; NOW, THEREFORE,
