Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ)
Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) is a transportation improvement program focused on reducing emissions in designated areas of the United States. Federal funding is available to government agencies for projects that will contribute greatly to air quality improvements and decreases in traffic congestion. Federal CMAQ funds must be spent in non-attainment or maintenance areas as determined by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
 

 CMAQ Eligible Areas

 
  • Boone, Boyd, Bullitt, Campbell, Christian, Daviess, Edmonson, Fayette, Jefferson, Kenton, Marshall, Oldham, and Scott
  • Portions of Greenup, Hancock, Lawrence, and Livingston counties
For detailed information on applying for CMAQ funding, please see the Kentucky Guidelines.
