Surface Transportation Program (STP) – Urban

Surface Transportation Program (STP) – Urban

 

The Surface Transportation Program (STP)-Urban program provides funds for improvements to eligible roads in urban areas. The eligibility guidelines for STP-Urban are flexible. Funds may be used for a wide range of projects including roadway widening, roadway reconstruction and transit projects. The STP-Urban program is the largest of all the federal STP programs. Funds are allocated to states and regions according to a formula that is based on the population of the urban area. The funding ratio for the STP-Urban Program is typically 80 percent federal funds to be matched by 20 percent state and/or local funds. Subcategories of the Connecticut STP Urban program include the STP- Hartford (STPH), STP-Bridgeport/Stamford (STPBS), STP-New 12 Haven (STPNH), (STPNL) STP-New London, STP-Worcester, STP-other urban) and the STP-urban clusters (STPO).

Prior to 2013, the South Western Region MPO rather than the Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) had primary responsibility for determining how to spend STP-Urban funds in the South Western Region. In 2013 the Connecticut legislature established the State Local Transportation Capital Improvement Program (LOTCIP) to provide a State funding source for urban municipal projects as an alternative to federal STP-Urban funding. The LOTCIP eligibility requirements are the same as the requirements for the STP-Urban program. Since 2013 the CTDOT has directed STP-Urban funding to regionally significant projects located on state roadways, with programming selection being a joint effort between CTDOT and the South Western Region MPO. The funding ratio for the STP-Urban program is typically 80 percent federal funds with a 20% non-federal match.
