Federal Transportation Improvement Program (FTIP)
The Federal Transportation Improvement Program (FTIP) is a federally mandated four-year program of all surface transportation projects that will receive federal funding or are subject to a federally required action. As the Metropolitan Planning Agency (MPO) for the region, SJCOG is responsible for developing the FTIP for submittal to Caltrans and the federal funding agencies. SJCOG prepares and maintains the FTIP in partnership with our member agencies and in cooperation with state and federal agencies and the eight San Joaquin Valley counties.
This program lists every transportation project that will receive federal funds or that is subject to a federally required action, such as a review and approval of environmental documents. This means that many-but not all-transit, highway, local roadway, bicycle and pedestrian investments are included in the FTIP. The projects included in the FTIP have been found to be consistent with SJCOG's Regional Transportation Plan (RTP).
The FTIP must comply with three key tests. First, it must give the public the opportunity to comment. Second, it must demonstrate that the amount of dollars programmed (committed) to the projects does not exceed the amount of dollars estimated to be available. Therefore the FTIP includes a financial summary that demonstrates financial constraint, namely that sufficient financial capacity exists for programmed projects to be implemented. Third, it must conform to the State Implementation Plan for the region with consideration to federal Clean Air Act.

Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) Cost Effectiveness Documentation
The CMAQ funds transportation projects contributing to the reduction of criteria pollutants in federally-designated non-attainment and maintenance regions. In 2007, all San Joaquin Valley MPOs adopted policies for distributing a minimum of 20 percent of CMAQ funds to projects meeting cost-effectiveness thresholds for emission reductions. In the 2023 FTIP, which covers Federal Fiscal Years (FFYs) 2022/2023 through 2025/2026, SJCOG is investing 53 percent towards highly cost-effective projects (less than $63 per pound of the region's criteria pollutants).
Annual Obligation Report
Federal law requires Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPO), such as the San Joaquin Council of Governments (SJCOG), to publish annual listings of projects for which federal funds have been obligated in the San Joaquin County region for the preceding Federal Fiscal Year (FFY).
