Funding programs

Federal and state funding programs administered through Local Programs.

The Carbon Reduction Program (CRP) provides funding for road projects designed to reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

The CMAQ program provides federal funding for transportation projects and programs to help meet the requirements of the Clean Air Act.

The Highway Infrastructure Program (HIP) provides federal funds for road, bridge, ferry, transit capital, and Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) capital projects for the elimination of hazards and the installation of protective devices at railway-highway crossing.

The Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) is a federal program that allows states, and the local governments within them, to target safety funds to their most critical safety needs. This includes funding to local agencies through the County Safety Program, City Safety Program, and Rail-Highway Safety Program.

Local Programs assists in the delivery of the local portion of federal transportation funds allocated to Washington State that are programmed in the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). We set delivery targets based upon the annual appropriated funding in the STPBG, TA, CMAQ and CRP programs.

The focus of this program is to preserve and improve the condition of bridges that are physically deteriorated or structurally deficient through replacement, rehabilitation and systematic preventive maintenance, that are owned by cities and counties.

The Move Ahead Washington (MAW) Railroad Crossing Grant Program funding is to match federal funds for city and county projects which eliminate at-grade highway-rail crossings.

The purpose of this program is to increase opportunities for safe, legal and environmentally acceptable motorized recreation on public roads.

Projects funded through the National Highway Freight Program (NHFP) designed to improve the efficient movement of freight on the National Highway Freight Network (NHFN) that preserves infrastructure, enhances safety and reduces congestion.

The objective of the program is to highlight the importance of preserving the roadway system by incentivizing agencies to use asset management strategies that provide cost-effective solutions to maximize the life expectancy of a roadway.

The Pedestrian and Bicycle program objective is to improve the transportation system to enhance safety and mobility for people who choose to walk or bike.

The Promoting Resilient Operation for Transformative, Efficient, and Cost Saving Transportation (PROTECT) program provides funding to help make surface transportation more resilient to climate change and natural disasters.

The purpose of the Safe Routes to Schools Program (SRTS) is to improve safety and mobility for children by enabling and encouraging them to walk and bicycle to school. Funding from this program is for projects within two-miles of primary, middle and high schools (K-12).

Learn how we are making walking, bicycling, and rolling more comfortable and welcoming in overburdened communities along state highways.

The Surface Transportation Block Grant (STBG) continues to be the most flexible of all the highway programs and provides the most financial support to local agencies.

Transportation Alternatives (TA) projects and activities encompass smaller-scale transportation projects such as pedestrians and bicycle facilities, historic preservation, safe routes to school and other transportation-related activities.

Slow down on ice and snow.

It's easier to skid or lose control traveling at higher speeds. Give yourself more time to stop.

Carry chains, practice installing them.

Winter conditions could mean chains are required on your route. Practice putting them on your vehicle ahead of time.

Pack your winter car kit.

Carry extra supplies like warm clothing, ice scraper and brush, jumper cables and other emergency items.
