Federal and Local Partnerships with Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) and City of Dallas
In recent months, NCTCOG staff has been working with DART and the City of Dallas on two funding partnerships intended to increase the amount of local funding available to the Regional Transportation Council to expedite projects and programs and to cash flow NCTCOG-implemented projects. Details of these partnerships will be presented.

COVID-19 Infrastructure Program Transit Partnership (Round 2) 
In November 2020, the Regional Transportation Council (RTC) approved $25 million in federal transportation funding to be utilized for transit improvements across the region. $14 million of specific improvements were approved by the RTC in March 2021. Details of the program and the projects being proposed for the remainder of the funding will be presented.

State Implementation Plan and Section 185 Requirements
As a result of the recent reclassifications of the Dallas-Fort Worth nonattainment area, upcoming State Implementation Plan (SIP) adoption by TCEQ will occur in April of 2024 for the 2008 standard, and November of 2023 for the 2015 standard. With the 2008 ozone standard’s change from “Serious” to “Severe,” the region may become subject to a federally required stationary source fee program. The annual fee program will be implemented as early as 2028 by the TCEQ, if the region fails to attain the 2008 ozone NAAQS by the end of 2026.


Proposed Modifications to the List of Funded Projects
A comprehensive list of funded transportation projects through 2026 is maintained in the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). Projects with committed funds from federal, State, and local sources are included in the TIP. To maintain an accurate project listing, this document is updated on a regular basis and posted below in the files tab near the bottom of the page for review and comment.
