Funding Initiatives

North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) transportation staff first developed project selection and evaluation criteria for the 1992 Call for Projects, and similar evaluation methods were used and have evolved for more recent funding programs since that time. Selection criteria generally address cost-effectiveness (current and future), air quality benefits, local commitment, congestion reduction, and the level of multi-modal and social mobility benefits afforded by a project. A comprehensive project rating system with diverse rating criteria, linked to the type of funding category being requested, is an efficient and equitable way to rank projects.
