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

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 $12 million/yr less
compared to FY2012
• Funding formula has changed:
– MAP-21: 50% to any area of the state; 50% based on population
– SAFETEA-LU: 37.5% to any area of the state; 62.5% based on
population
MAP-21 Highway Formula Program Consolidation
• Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP): Increased
funding levels ($ 5M/yr) and continued focus on ALL public
roads
• 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
Plan
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
tolling:
– to expand Interstate capacity
– Federal Value Pricing Pilot Program (MN one of 15 states
involved)
– 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
goals
MAP-21 Urban Transit Highlights
• Urbanized area transit formula funding – gets $54.5 M/yr for
new uses such as transit capital and preventive
maintenance
• 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
shoulders
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
focus:
∙ 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
programs
∙ 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
