Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program
The Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement (CMAQ) Program is a federally-funded program of surface transportation improvements designed to improve air quality and mitigate congestion. In 2011 CMAP began implementing GO TO 2040 through the CMAQ program by having Program Focus Groups prioritize project applications based on how they support the goals and action areas of GO TO 2040. The program description document contains more information on the program and the types of projects it funds.
The new Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2014-2018 Program of Projects has been approved. Check out the Program Development page for more information on the new program.
