Frequently Asked Questions: FTA Waiver of Non-Federal Match for Complete Streets Planning
FTA has approved a waiver regarding federal funding for the Metropolitan Planning Program and State Planning Research Program funds for Complete Streets planning activities. The waiver is available to metropolitan planning organizations and state departments of transportation that receive federal funds [authorized by 49 U.S.C. § 49 5305]. By removing non-federal match requirements, the waiver provides 100-percent federal funding for activities that improve safety and accessibility through activities described in the Bipartisan infrastructure Law [section 11206 (c)]. The waiver mirrors and can be used in coordination with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) waiver for Complete Streets planning.
