Any SSMMA Transportation Member municipality may submit a project for funding consideration through the Surface Transportation Program (STP). Projects may be submitted when SSMMA has issued a Call for Projects. Project Calls will open in January of even numbered years. Final applications will be due in March and must be submitted by the date approved by the SSMMA Transportation Committee. A project sponsor must be a SSMMA Transportation Member municipality. Other agencies, such as Cook or Will Counties, townships within the South Council, and transit agencies must secure an eligible municipal sponsor in order to submit an application.

STP Shared Fund


The shared fund was established for the purpose of supporting larger-scale regional projects that address regional performance measures and the goals of CMAP’s ON TO 2050. The programming authority distributed to the shared fund is derived from a set-aside of the region’s annual allotment of STP-L funds. Project selection is a region-wide competitive process overseen by the STP Project Selection Committee. Project eligibility is focused on projects of significant cost and multi-jurisdictional projects in eight categories that address federal performance measures and priorities of ON TO 2050: road reconstructions, transit station rehabilitation or reconstructions, bridge rehabilitation or reconstructions, highway/rail grade crossing improvements, road expansions, bus speed improvements, corridor-level or small area safety improvements, and truck route improvements. Evaluation criteria are intended to emphasize the desire to bring projects to completion, address needs with cost-effective improvements, and implement planning factors that are an integral part of ON TO 2050, while also considering local preferences at the subregional level.
