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.

The Annual Listing of Projects with Federal Funding FY 2018 is published in response to the FAST Act requirement for Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPO) to publish an annual listing of federally funded projects in the San Joaquin Council of Governments region that were obligated during the federal fiscal year 2018.
Backup Listings for Grouped Projects
Title 23, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Section 450.216 (j) allows projects that are not considered to be of appropriate scale for individual identification in the FTIP to be grouped by function, work type, or geographic region using appropriate classifications under 23 CFR 771.117(c) and (d) and/or 40 CFR part 93. These projects are often referred to as Grouped Projects Listings or Lump Sum Projects Listings. SJCOG is required to maintain a detail list of the projects in each group.
