2020 - 2022 Federal Funding Call for Projects


TRPC Invites Public Comments on Federal Transportation Grant Proposals

View the Legal Notice

During TRPC’s 2020-2022 Federal Funding Call for Projects, the City of Yelm submitted two funding proposals:

  1. SW Mosman Avenue Phase 2, STP request $133,320;
  2. Mill Road Pedestrian Improvement, TAP request $52,834 
On July 2, the City withdrew its original proposals and submitted Surface Transportation Program (STP) and Transportation Alternative Program (TAP) applications for the Fort Stevens Elementary – Pedestrian Improvements project. Originally awarded a federal grant by TRPC in 2016, the latest applications request grant funding to offset higher than expected construction costs. The Fort Stevens Elementary – Pedestrian Improvements project will construct a sidewalk along the north side of 100th Way SE. The sidewalk is in a residential neighborhood within the school zone. The project will include a pedestrian warning beacon, landscaping, stormwater treatment facilities, and pavement restoration. 

On July 6, the Council was briefed on the city’s request. The Council seeks public comments prior to taking action on Yelm’s grant proposals. On July 11, the Transportation Policy Board approved a funding recommendation to the Council to approve Yelm’s new proposals. The Council is expected to take action on this funding request during their regularly scheduled meeting on September 7.

Copies of the proposals can be viewed or downloaded from the links below:

 Yelm STP Grant: Fort Stevens Elementary - Pedestrian Improvements $133,320

Background Information

TRPC is an important partner in the transportation planning process. As a council of governments comprised of elected officials from cities, the county, tribes, Intercity Transit, school districts, colleges, and a variety of local government special purpose districts, TRPC offers broad representation to decision making on regional transportation priorities.

In its role as a federally designated Metropolitan Planning Organization and a state designated Regional Transportation Planning Organization, TRPC endeavors to make its Regional Transportation Plan as inclusive and forward thinking as possible. To assist the region in fulfilling its long-range transportation planning goals in both the urban and rural areas of Thurston County, TRPC has authority to program discretionary federal funds to transportation projects, programs and services that serve local communities.

Executing a call for projects is part of TRPC’s continuous, coordinated, and comprehensive approach to regional transportation planning.
