The Policy Board reviewed public input and approved requests for Surface Transportation Block Grant funding on new projects on March 24, 2022. The Policy Board also reviewed demographic information collected. Summary of public input on new projects and demographic information
The Roanoke Valley Transportation Planning Organization (RVTPO) receives about $6 million per year from federal and state transportation programs to directly select and fund transportation projects in the Roanoke Valley via the Surface Transportation Block Grant (STBG) program. This is different from other funding programs because these projects don’t compete at the state or federal level. The RVTPO received 14 requests (3 existing projects requesting additional funds for cost overruns and 11 new requests) totaling over $43 million. The RVTPO anticipates at least $17 million in STBG funds for 2023 – 2029.
