2. Examples of Federal Programs Surface Transportation – Urban (STU)* American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARA)* Surface Transportation – Rural (STR) Transportation Bill High Priority (usually from multi-year ; i.e. SAFETEA-LU) Section Funds (usually from fiscal year program) Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ)* Transportation Enhancement Program (ITEP)* Highway Bridge Program (HBP)* High Risk Rural Roads (HRR) Highway Safety Improvement (HSIP) and others * Comprise most of local program

3. Keys to Know Federal funds are reimbursements – not ‘Grants’ Projects sponsors are required to front money for engineering and then invoice for the appropriate portion of funding reimbursement. On State let construction, the State pays the Contractor then bills the project sponsor for their portion. In the rare case, where a federal project is let locally, the project sponsor is required to ‘front’ the money and seek reimbursement. In some cases, a percentage of the funds may be made available upon award of the project. Engineering Phases cannot be overlapped or combined when federal funds are involved (i.e., PE2 funds will not be authorized prior to PE1 Design Approval). All Federally funded projects are required to be in the TIP (Transportation Improvement Program). TIP entry, monitoring and changes are the responsibility of the program administrator, not the project sponsor.

4. Do’s and Don'ts with Federal Funds DO Coordinate early with IDOT-BLRS. DO Keep program administrator in the communication loop. DO Be responsive to inquiries. DO Keep a current status of schedule and funding as many federal fund programs have fiscal year constraints. Any changes to the TIP require lead time for approval. Do not deviate from the approved scope. Any change would require approval from the Program Administrator or political sponsor. Do not bypass the Federal Process, as funds for all phases could be nullified.
