RIC Transport Project Funds
RIC Suballocated Transportation Project Funding
The RIC MPO seeks to improve transportation infrastructure throughout the two-county region of Kanawha and Putnam counties through the implementation of projects utilizing MPO-specific federal suballocated funds. The MPO is responsible for allocating federal suballocated funds from the Surface Transportation Block Grant Program (STBG) and the Carbon Reduction Program (CRP) for eligible projects.
The MPO Project Selection Guidelines for Federal Suballocated Funds for the Regional Intergovernmental Council (RIC) serve as a guide for project eligibility and the application process for the purpose of allocating federal suballocated funds for the RIC metropolitan planning area, comprising Kanawha and Putnam counties in West Virginia. These guidelines were adopted by the RIC Policy Board on June 8th, 2023. They are subject to change upon adoption of any changes by the RIC Policy Board.
