FEDERAL AID PROGRAMS
Federal Transportation Act
Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) is the current federal transportation act. The two-year federal act was signed into law by President Obama on July 6, 2012, and covers from October 1, 2013 through September 30, 2014. MAP-21 funds surface transportation programs at over $105 billion for federal fiscal year (FFY) 2013 and 2014. MAP-21 transforms the policy and programmatic framework for investments to guide the system's growth and development. MAP-21 creates a streamlined and performance-based surface transportation program and builds on many of the highway, transit, bike, and pedestrian programs and policies established in 1991.
