Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st
Century (MAP-21) – Surface
Transportation Reauthorization Bill
Federal Funding Terminology
• Authorization Acts – upper limit on program funding
• Apportionment – statutory formula funding terms
• Appropriations Acts – annual funding with specific
funding amounts
• Obligation Authority – annual funding amount
released by federal aid highway program
SAFETEA-LU & MAP-21– Highway Themes
• SAFETEA-LU (2005-2009+): Earmarks, Equity Bonus,
separate highway safety program, State received
program by program apportionment
-MN highway obligation authority - $525 M/yr
• MAP-21 (2012-2014):Performance-based Investment,
National Highway System focus, formula program
consolidation and changes
-(Est.) MN highway obligation authority - $575 M/yr

Equity Bonus
Total Apportionment
MAP-21 Highway Formula Program Consolidation
• National Highway Performance Program (NHPP)
• 63.7% of Minnesota’s total Federal Aid Apportionment
• Approximately $57 million in additional annual
apportionment compared to previous programs
• Performance Driven Investment: US DOT will establish
national measures and Interstate performance targets,
NHS performance targets established by each state
• Matching requirements remain
• Ability to transfer up to 50% of NHPP
MAP-21 Highway Formula Program Consolidation
• Surface Transportation Program (STP) - primary federal
funding source for projects not on NHS
• Transit Capital included
• 29.3% of Minnesota’s total Federal Aid Apportionment
• Minnesota’s STP apportionment is $12 million/yr less
compared to FY2012
• Funding formula has changed:
– MAP-21: 50% to any area of the state; 50% based on population
– SAFETEA-LU: 37.5% to any area of the state; 62.5% based on
MAP-21 Highway Formula Program Consolidation
• Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP): Increased
funding levels ($ 5M/yr) and continued focus on ALL public
• CMAQ and Metropolitan Planning: similar apportionment
• Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP)
– Funding for Enhancements, Safe Routes to Schools, Recreational Trails, and
other similar transportation projects
– $16.5 million in apportionment for FY 2013. $7 million less than SAFETEA-LU
– One set-aside: $2.2 million for Recreational Trails
– Competitive grant process
Performance Management Provisions
• MAP-21 connects transportation investments to
performance-based outcomes
◦New national goals establish outcomes
◦National performance measures establish
criteria for measuring progress
◦State targets will measure progress toward goals
MAP-21 Tribal Transportation
• The Indian Reservation Roads (IRR) Program changed to
Tribal Transportation Program (TTP)
• MAP-21 replaces previous formula funding, resulting in
funding reductions to Minnesota tribes
– 27% based on a tribe’s relative share of road miles
– 39% based on a tribe’s relative share of HUD Indian housing
population (self-identified)
– 34% based on a tribe’s share of RNDF and population
adjustment factor funding from FY2005 to FY2012
MAP-21 Freight Provisions
• Increased freight policy and planning focus
– Freight Performance Requirements: truck travel time
and reliability on Interstate highways
– Designation of National Freight Network will drive future
freight funding and priorities
– US DOT required to develop a National Freight Strategic
MAP-21 Alternative Finance Provisions
• TIFIA: $1.7 billion in funding for credit assistance to
projects of national or regional significance
• Tolling: MAP-21 expands state ability to use
– to expand Interstate capacity
– Federal Value Pricing Pilot Program (MN one of 15 states
– all electronic toll facilities must be interoperable by Oct. 1, 2016
Accelerated Project Delivery Emphasis
• Accelerated Project Delivery:
– Authority for activities prior to completion of NEPA, including
acquisition of real property
– Authority to enter into CM/GC contract
• Environmental Streamlining: permits programmatic
approaches for environmental reviews and mitigation plans
– Additional Categorical Exclusions
• Agency Coordination: accelerated decision-making
(combined FEIS and ROD), emphasis on early interagency
coordination and a new issue resolution process
MAP-21– Transit Themes
• Highway/ Transit - 80/20 funding split retained
• Consolidation of major formula programs
• New Freedom program replaced by Enhanced Mobility of
Seniors and Individuals with Disabilities
• New asset management requirements
• Performance-based planning requirements aligning federal
funding with national goals and progress towards these
MAP-21 Urban Transit Highlights
• Urbanized area transit formula funding – gets $54.5 M/yr for
new uses such as transit capital and preventive
• Fixed Guideway Capital Investment Grants replaces New
Starts/Small Starts Programs with new eligibility for core
capacity projects
• New State of Good Repair Program. Two categories of funding
($11.3 M/yr)
– High Intensity Fixed Guideway formula for rail and BRT on
exclusive guideways
– High Intensity Motorbus formula for buses that run in HOV lanes or
MAP-21 Rural Transit Highlights
∙ Non-urbanized formula funding. Job Access/Reverse
Commute now eligible
∙ Enhanced Mobility of Seniors and Individuals with
Disabilities apportions funding to both states and large
urbanized areas (>200,000)
∙ Although federal formula funding to Greater Minnesota
transit increased, other program changes reduced key
greater MN transit bus funding streams
MAP-21 Highway Investment
Programming Challenges
∙ Same amount of highway funding, but apportioned differently
∙ MAP-21 emphasis on Performance-based Investment and NHS
∙ Interstate pavements at 2% poor (national standard)
∙ NHS pavements at 3% poor (proposed state target)
∙ Bridges with less than 10% structural deficiency (MAP-21)
∙ MAP-21 flexibility to transfer funds between six core formula highway
∙ Alignment of four year highway plan (STIP) with MAP-21 provisions
Four-year plan published in the late fall/early winter each year
Includes all projects using federal funds provided through FHWA
as well as other regionally significant highway projects
Organized by region of the state and by year
Must be fiscally constrained
Area Transportation Partnerships (ATPs) involved throughout the
STIP development process
Sub-state, multi-county partnerships
Include traditional and non-traditional transportation partners
Role is to integrate regional transportation priorities into the
programming process
Solicit and review projects that are eligible for federal funding
within their region
Under Programmed
FY 2013
FY 2014
FY 2015
FY 2016
Goal: Move toward all MAP-21 performance goals, additional funding for
Transportation Alternatives, and maintain the current program:
Most projects in years FY 2014-2016 will be funded
$186 million for new interstate and national highway system
$60 million for new metro reliability projects
$27 million for new highway safety projects
$20 million for new transportation alternative projects
Funding Sources for Additional Projects:
$188 million in federal funds above forecast
$105 million in project shifts
fiscal yearforecast
Statewide Performance Program ($400M)
∙ Interstate pavements and NHS bridges
∙ NHS system performance
District Flexible Program for managing the Districts’ highest
priorities ($320M)
Funding directed by Area Transportation Partnerships
Transition to MAP-21 programs and funding in FY 2014-2016
New target formula beginning in FY 2017
Increased emphasis on aligning spending with specific
performance measures
Increased emphasis on statewide programs
Continued involvement of Area Transportation Partnerships (ATPs)
∙ Minnesota GO
∙ Minnesota State Highway Investment Plan (MnSHIP)
