The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a short-range fiscal programming document representing the first four (4) to six (6) years of the Metropolitan Transportation Plan.

The TIP contains information about regionally significant transportation projects including the scope of the project, the phases that will receive funding, the estimated project cost, and the type of funding that will be used. The TIP is required to be updated every two years. It is the responsibility of the Transportation Policy Committee (TPC) to approve the TIP.

Amendments & Administrative Modifications

Project changes are often necessary as projects develop and are achieved through the amendment process for major changes or the administrative modification process for minor changes. New projects that are considered minor must fit within one of the Group Projects categories. For more information check out the Group Projects Policy.

MPO Dedicated Funding Programs

As the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Louisville/Jefferson County KY-IN region, KIPDA receives federal funding from the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) and Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) for several transportation programs. The table below indicates which programs KIPDA receives funds for in each state.

Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ-MPO)  
Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP-MPO)

KIPDA’s Transportation Policy Committee (TPC) has the authority to award federal funds from the MPO dedicated programs. The following guidance document explains how KIPDA manages funds from these programs:

KIPDA staff keeps track of each project that has been awarded MPO dedicated funds. It is important to know how much federal funding has been programmed for each phase of a particular project. Programming a project means the funds associated with a particular phase are included in the current Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). Staff also keeps track of the obligation of federal funds as well. An obligation means that the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) has agreed to provide reimbursement to project sponsors for project costs immediately or at a later date.  The following document provides information about the programming and obligation of projects that have been awarded MPO dedicated funds:  

KIPDA staff alerts project sponsors when various deadlines are approaching. These include progress reports, cost increase and phase shift applications. The following calendar outlines the activities and deadlines for FY 2021:  

Every 2-3 years KIPDA announces a Call for Projects whereby new projects can compete for MPO dedicated funds. TPC has the sole authority to approve the award of MPO dedicated funds. The following documents identify the projects that were awarded funding through a Call for Projects:

KIPDA staff updates the public on the progress of each MPO dedicated project periodically. The progress report summaries are provided below:
