Transportation Improvement Program (TIP)
The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a prioritized, fiscally-constrained, and multi-year list of federally-funded, multimodal transportation projects and operations in the CCRPC region: Chittenden County. Under federal law, the TIP must cover at least a four-year program of projects and be updated no less frequently than every two years.
In addition, projects in the TIP must be prioritized at the regional level and have clearly identified funding sources. All transportation projects, programs, and operations receiving federal funds in Chittenden County must be authorized through the CCRPC TIP process. The exception are federal airport funds for Burlington International Airport, which are not subject to the CCRPC’s prioritization process, but are listed in the TIP for information and coordination purposes.

WHAT DOES THE TIP DO?
The TIP authorizes the implementing agency (e.g., Vermont Agency of Transportation, Green Mountain Transit) to obligate federal funds for listed projects and operations over the next four federal fiscal years.
The first year of a duly-adopted and approved TIP constitutes an “agreed to” list of projects for implementation, provided that anticipated federal funds available to the region are available during that year.
The U.S. Department of Transportation must find that the TIP is based on a continuing, comprehensive transportation planning process carried out cooperatively by the State, the CCRPC, and transit operators. An open public participation process is a key element of the TIP development process.
MAKING CHANGES TO THE TIP
The CCRPC may revise the TIP at any time under procedures agreed to by the cooperating parties and consistent with procedures established for development of the TIP (23 CFR 450.324). The CCRPC’s current TIP amendment policy was adopted by the CCRPC Board on April 21, 2021.

OBLIGATING FUNDS: ANNUAL LIST OF CHITTENDEN COUNTY PROJECTS FUNDED WITH FEDERAL FUNDS
Each year the CCRPC adopts a TIP, the region’s transportation spending plan for the next four years. Projects listed on the TIP may be amended throughout the year according to the CCRPC amendment procedures, if funding is available. When a project is ready for implementation, funds are set aside for that project. This process is known as obligating funds. If funds are not obligated by the end of the program year, they must be added to the TIP in future years, and be accommodated within the future year constraint limit.
The tables linked below summarize federal funds obligated to Chittenden County projects in five year increments.
