Community Mobility Planning and Implementation

The purpose of the Community Mobility Planning and Implementation (CMPI) set-aside is to support 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. The program goals are to:
  • Support diverse, livable communities. 
  • Support the development of connected urban centers and multimodal corridors.
  • Support a transportation system that is well-connected and serves all modes of travel.
  • Support healthy and active choices. 
  • Expand access to opportunity for residents of all ages, incomes and abilities.
The 2020-2023 TIP Policy established $4.8 million in federal funds for the CMPI set-aside over the four-year period. For the first two-year period (FY 2020 and 2021) the CMPI set-aside contains:
  • $1 million for small area planning and/or transportation studies, and 
  • $1.4 million for small infrastructure projects. 
In addition to this commitment, $900,000 from previous calls and returned funds were rolled into the small infrastructure portion, bringing the total available for small infrastructure projects to $2.3 million for the FY 2020-2021 call.
