Call for Projects (CFP/Call)
The purpose of the CFP is to identify, select, and approve projects that align with MDOT's goals, policies, and strategic plan. Please submit CMAQ project applications according to the Call for Project instructions.
Projects should be submitted via JobNet through MILogin for Third Party.
Local agencies whom do not have access to JobNet must coordinate with their local coordinating agency (MPO or RPA/RTF) to program jobs into JobNet. Local coordinating agencies will submit finalized applications once the local agency has prepared a complete application.

Please note: CMAQ is not a grant program. The role of the CMAQ CFP Committee is to determine the Federal Aid eligibility for CMAQ funding. If a project is deemed eligible by the CMAQ CFP Committee, this is not a final approval of the project. Project applicants must also work with MDOT Regions, TSCs, LAP, and all other appropriate agencies responsible in issuing approvals and permits. It is not uncommon for a project to require modifications after an eligibility determination based on the feedback of these entities.
