Transportation Improvement Program Set-Aside

DRCOG's Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) also funds set-asides. Some set-asides hold their own calls for projects at different times during the active TIP lifespan, along with unique scoring criteria. A brief description of each TIP set-aside can be found below, along with information on the next call for projects.


2020-2023 TIP Set-Asides

Community Mobility Planning and Implementation supports small area planning and small infrastructure projects that contribute to the implementation of key outcomes within Metro Vision and the Metro Vision Regional Transportation Plan. 

This call for projects is closed for fiscal years 2020 and 2021. The next call is expected to be in the summer of 2021 for fiscal years 2022 and 2023. Click here to learn more.

TDM Services

Transportation demand management, or TDM, refers to activities that help people use the transportation system more efficiently while reducing traffic congestion, vehicle emissions and fuel consumption. In addition to funding non-infrastructure projects, the TIP funds the Way to Go program and partnerships with seven regional transportation management associations.

The call for 2020 projects is now open. Visit this page to learn more. 

Regional Transportation Operations and Technology

The Regional Transportation Operations and Technology Set-Aside combines the Traffic Signal System Improvement Program (TSSIP) and the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) programs of DRCOG. These programs involve DRCOG, CDOT, and local governments to coordinate traffic signals and improve the safety, efficiency, dependability and cost-effectiveness of our regional transportation system.  

This call for projects is currently closed. A call for projects is expected to happen in late 2019/early 2020 and again the fall of 2021.

Air Quality Improvements

The Air Quality Improvements  Set-Aside dedicates funds exclusively for the Regional Air Quality Council (RAQC) in programs such as vehicle fleet technology, ozone outreach and education, and ozone SIP modeling. 

Human Service Transportation

The Human Service Transportation Set-Aside funds transit capital, operating, and mobility management projects to improve service and mobility options for vulnerable populations by funding underfunded/underserved trips and rolling stock expansion.

This joint call for projects with CDOT is closed for fiscal year 2020. The next call is expected in the summer of 2020.
