Presentations
COVID-19 Transportation Response: Information System & Economic Opportunities
Utilizing specific performance metrics, staff will provide an update on the economic impacts and effects of COVID-19 restrictions on the transportation system.

Coronavirus Aid, Relief & Economic Security Act: Public Transportation Funding 
Staff will provide for review and comment a list of transit projects allocated funding by the Federal Transit Administration's Urbanized Area Formula Program through the Fiscal Year 2020 Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.

Southeast Dallas County Funding Partnerships
NCTCOG staff has been working with several cities in Southeast Dallas County, including Balch Springs, Hutchins and Sunnyvale on funding partnerships for roadway improvements in their jurisdictions. Staff will present details on these partnerships for public review and comment.

Local Government Energy Reporting
The Texas Health and Safety Code §388.005(c), requires political subdivisions in
nonattainment or near nonattainment counties in Texas to reduce their electric
consumption by five percent each year and report their annual energy consumption to the State Energy Conservation Office (SECO). To increase compliance and awareness of this reporting requirement, NCTCOG staff has developed resources and trainings and provided technical assistance to entities related to energy management. Staff will provide an overview of the energy reporting requirement, energy management resources developed and datapoints from FY19 reports submitted to SECO.

Work Program Modifications
The Unified Planning Work Program (UPWP) for regional transportation planning provides a summary of the transportation and related air quality planning tasks to be conducted by the metropolitan planning organization. Proposed modifications to the FY2020 and FY2021 UPWP will be posted for review and comment.
