Just as MoDOT receives federal funds for state projects, MoDOT is also required to pass federal funds to local agencies, such as cities and counties, for local agency projects.

Write Up:

Local agencies receive federal funds to invest in projects that improve local infrastructure, and they share the cost of those projects by providing a 20% local match for most programs. To keep federal funds coming to Missouri, all federal funds received each year must be committed to projects by the end of the federal fiscal year. If the available funds are not fully committed, the funds are at risk of being rescinded, which jeopardizes the ability to receive additional federal funds to deliver more projects.

For FY 2023, local agencies have $410 million to invest in local transportation projects. For FY 2023, 53% ($216 million) of available funds have been committed to local projects, as compared to 29% ($89 million) in FY 2022. In FY 2022, allocations for existing programs increased and several new program allocations were added to the amount available for projects.

Purpose of the Measure:

MoDOT is required to share federal funds with local agencies for transportation projects. This measure tracks the percent of available local program funds committed to projects.  

Measurement and Data Collection:

The data is obtained from the Federal Highway Administration’s Fiscal Management Information System and based on the Federal Fiscal Year from October 1 through September 30. The committed amounts represent federal funds obligated for projects. The available amounts represent the federal program funds distributed to local sponsors plus any previous year balance. The desire is to invest all federal funds available to local public projects each year.

The target for this measure is set by internal policy and will not change unless policy changes, regardless of performance.
