Funding considerations

Funding for transportation improvements

Funding for transportation improvements can come from a range of different sources, including federal, state, and local. In Massachusetts, the majority of large transportation construction projects are funded with a combination of federal transportation and required non-federal match, generally provided by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. 

Statewide funding that is allocated at MassDOT's discretion includes funding from all of the federal highway programs listed below:

  • Federal Highway Administration
  • National Highway Performance Program (NHPP)
  • Bridge (BR)
  • Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP)
  • Surface Transportation Program (STP)
  • Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program (CMAQ)
