RTPO Capital Allocation Policy & Application
Investments in federal transportation programs were authorized through 2026 by the United States Congress in 2021 as the Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act (IIJA), also known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL). This federal law reauthorized the Surface Transportation Block Grant (STBG) program. The Ohio Department of Transportation has allocated a portion of these funds to Ohio’s Regional Transportation Planning Organizations (RTPOs), including the Ohio Mid-Eastern Governments Association (OMEGA).
OMEGA’ s program depends on the continuation of federal funding programs and ODOT’s policy. Each Ohio RTPO was allocated funding dependent on a base allocation of $100,000 and a formula-based calculation based on land area and population. Based on these calculations, OMEGA is allocated $1,133,025 annually in state fiscal year (SFY) 2024 and SFY 2025. The Ohio 135th General Assembly and ODOT have established these funds through SFY 2025. If future funding rounds are established, this policy will be revisited by the Transportation Advisory Committee and updated, if needed.
