Local and state government agencies are eligible to apply for CMAQ funding. Non-profits and private sector entities may partner with an eligible applicant to complete a project.
In order to be eligible for CMAQ funding a project must be located in one of the CMAQ eligible areas (or have a direct AQ benefit to one of these areas) and must reduce CO2, NOX, VOCs, PM2.5, and PM10 emissions from transportation. Ancillary benefits of eligible projects, such as greenhouse gas reductions, congestion relief, mobility, and safety may be considered when awarding CMAQ funding, although those benefits do not establish eligibility on their own.
Projects must follow all federal and state guidelines outlined in the KYTC Federal-Aid Highway Program Project Development Guide for Local Public Agencies (LPAs).
