The Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) is responsible for programming multiple local, state, and federal sources for eligible projects through multiple transportation modes (pedestrian, bicycle, highway, transit and others). Through OCTA Call for Projects local agencies can receive allocation for projects that will improve infrastructure, transportation services and overall quality of life in Orange County that are consistent with the needs of the public and regulatory guidelines.
Federal Transportation Improvement Program
The Federal Transportation Improvement Program (FTIP) is a capital listing of all transportation projects proposed over a six-year period. Projects include highway improvements, transit, rail and bus facilities, high occupancy vehicle lanes, signal synchronization, intersection improvements, freeway ramps, etc. The OCTA FTIP database, OC Fundtracker, includes all projects that are deemed regionally significant, regardless of the funding source and allow local agencies access to view and amend their projects.
OCTA is currently developing the FTIP. For details on the FTIP, click here.
Transportation Funding Source Guide
The OCTA Transportation Funding Resources Guide was developed to provide an overview of fund sources available to local agencies. The goal of this document is to assist agencies in identifying fund sources available to deliver projects. By providing this information, OCTA hopes that agencies will take advantage of the available funding programs.
Due to the recent reauthorization of the transportation bill, Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21), the transportation funding guide is being updated. Coming soon!
Upcoming call for projects
