Member-Designated Transportation Projects and Community Funding Requests

Member-Designated Transportation Projects

The House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure (T&I) plans to advance surface transportation authorization legislation later this spring, building on H.R. 2, the Moving Forward Act, from the 116th Congress. Chairman Peter DeFazio announced that the T&I Committee will formally accept requests for projects from House Members.

The T&I Committee process for considering member projects is separate and distinct from the House Committee on Appropriations’ process for considering Community Funding requests. Projects funded through the surface transportation authorization will be funded directly from the Highway Trust Fund, and they do not require a separate or subsequent appropriation. For more information about Community Funding requests, please scroll down. 

Please note:

  • Congresswoman Manning will NOT accept requests for projects outside of NC-06.
  • Only legally-eligible entities, including state and local units of government, may request projects. 
  • Project sponsors must comply with all relevant federal laws and regulations.
  • A request submitted by Congresswoman Manning to the Committee does NOT guarantee the project will be funded.

_________________________

Project Eligibility

Capital projects eligible under title 23, United States Code, and chapter 53 of title 49, United States Code, are eligible for funding requests under T&I’s project submission process.

The best way to ensure project eligibility is to select projects included in the Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) or Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), as those projects have already been certified as eligible for Federal Highway Administration or Federal Transit Administration funding and do not require further verification of eligibility.

For projects not in the STIP or TIP, additional documentation is required, including verification about whether the project can be added to the STIP or TIP in a reasonable timeframe, whether the project is on a long-range transportation plan, and verification of eligibility for the proposed activity under title 23 or chapter 53 of title 49 by the relevant federal agency.

Further, project sponsors must demonstrate the ability to fully obligate any funds provided within the obligation window, and must demonstrate a proven ability to finance the remaining costs not funded by the Committee, as well as the required non-federal cost share.

The devices will be capable of receiving the CBRS 5G network signal and broadcasting the eduRoam wireless network which provides access to vital educational resources. Additionally, the funding will address the digital divide and allow high-school students to connect to the Guilford County Schools network from their homes, providing access to vital educational resources.

Explanation of the Request: I am requesting $5,000,000 for the Greensboro Innovation District for the City of Greensboro, NC for Fiscal Year 2022. The Greensboro Innovation District will be a vehicle for revenue growth in a depressed area of town as well as an efficient use of existing vacant structures.  The district will offer the prospect of jobs and educational opportunities within key targeted industries for a disadvantaged population in the surrounding low-income neighborhoods. The surrounding neighborhoods will benefit from the expansion of high-speed broadband connectivity that will be necessary to support the business requirements of the Innovation District. It will be located in a depressed downtown area that has been designated as an opportunity zone. There are many properties for sale and the potential for strategic use of numerous existing structures and historic buildings that could be renovated for offices, maker spaces, tech startups, incubators, etc.  The south end of downtown Greensboro is emerging as the place for innovation and could logically continue to expand down South Elm Street

The proposed center would provide emergency shelter and transitional housing, as well as opportunities to individuals to access services, learn basic skills, and regain their ability to live independently. There would be an emergency/short-term bed service as well as a long-term supportive care program. Supportive services would include but would not be limited to permanent housing locator and resources, family reunification, case management, support for mental and physical health care through collaboration. This facility would serve as the homeless services center for High Point and facilitate service delivery in one location with partner agencies.

A centralized location would provide a permanent, quality base for services to both men and women and allow Open Door Ministries to increase their scope of work.

This multimodal connector would help bridge a critical gap from the existing High Point Greenway to High Point's downtown, and would provide a spine that would provide future greenway connectivity options throughout the City.  The project will enhance equitable access to outdoor recreation, economic development, and safe, healthy, active transportation. The project will connect communities and bring more urban renewal to High Point. This trail connection will also complete a long-distance commuter and recreational greenway from Greensboro, NC and Northeast High Point to Downtown High Point.  This project was identified as the top priority corridor in High Point in the High Point MPO Regional Bicycle Plan and the 2021 City of High Point Greenway Master Plan.
