Additional Information on Eligibility
Eligible entities include a State or a group of States; a Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPOs) or a group of Metropolitan Planning Organizations (as defined in 23 U.S.C. 134(b)); a local government or a group of local governments; and multi-jurisdictional groups. An eligible multi-jurisdictional group is any combination of States, local governments, or Metropolitan Planning Organizations for which each member of the group has signed a written agreement to participate in the SIRC pilot project across jurisdictional boundaries. If the applicant is a multi-jurisdictional group, one entity in the group will be required to administer the Federal funding, which may also entail providing project oversight. Where applicable, FHWA expects that all relevant State agencies (e.g., Department of Motor Vehicles, Department of Revenue) needed to initiate a full-scale deployment of the proposed revenue mechanism will be actively involved in the planning and operation of a pilot project.If a State has previously proven the viability of an alternative revenue mechanism in a limited capacity through its own research, it may still be a candidate for funding under the SIRC Program. Applications for full, new pilot projects and for extensions or enhancements of previous pilot or demonstration projects are both eligible if they meet the other eligibility requirements.
