Presentations

Regional Operations and Air Quality Funding
The Regional Air Quality and Management and Operations Program provides federal and regional air quality and mobility funds to programs and projects that address the region’s air quality and aid in management and operations of the regional transportation system. Details of the program and the projects being proposed for funding will be presented.

RTC's Assessment Policy Project Funding
The Assessment Policy Program is intended to award federal air quality and mobility funds to projects across the region that include an economic development component. In each case, the Regional Transportation Council will be repaid for at least a portion of its contribution over time via various local funding sources. Details on the projects proposed for funding and the overall program will be presented.
 
Start of 2019 Ozone Season
The 2019 ozone season begins March 1 and runs through November 30, 2019. The
Dallas-Fort Worth region does not meet the federal air quality standard for the pollutant ozone, and NCTCOG staff continues to implement projects and programs to improve air quality and protect public health. Staff will present an ozone season update as well as strategies individuals, businesses and local governments can implement to help reduce air pollution.

They could be eligible to receive up to $600 for repair or up to $3,500 for replacement. All those interested are encouraged to apply. Applications will be accepted through Monday, April 8.
