Mobility 2045 Update & 2022 Transportation Conformity
One of the primary responsibilities of a Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is the development and maintenance of a Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP). NCTCOG staff has initiated the development of an update to the current MTP, Mobility 2045, and will provide an overview of the draft plan materials which are available at www.nctcog.org/PlanInProgress.
The Clean Air Act (CAA) requires MPOs to perform an air quality analysis when a MTP is developed/updated. This analysis is to ensure the multimodal transportation system complies with applicable Motor Vehicle Emission Budgets (MVEB) established for the region. Per the CAA, staff has conducted successful analyses for the required MVEB analysis year, the MTP horizon year, and interim years.
Proposed Awards from EV Charging Station Call for Projects
Staff will give an update on funding recommendations from the NCTCOG Electric Vehicle Charging Station Call for Projects April 22, 2022 application deadline. This grant funding is for the purchase and installation of publicly accessible Level 2 and Direct Current Fast Charge (DCFC) electric vehicle charging stations.
AV2.1: Preparing for Emerging Transportation Technology with Local Partners

East/West Funding Formula Update
With the passage of each new transportation funding bill, the funding distributions between the Eastern and Western portions of the Dallas-Fort Worth region are re-evaluated. An overview of the process for establishing the funding split and the proposed new splits for both mobility and air quality funds will be provided for review and comment.
2023-2026 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)
The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a federally and State-mandated list of transportation projects with committed federal, State, and local funding within a four-year period. Staff will present an overview of the TIP development process and provide a final list of projects with funding in FY 2023-2026 and the TIP document for review and comment.
