Member-Designated Transportation Projects

Member Designated Projects

The House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure will advance surface transportation authorization legislation this year and will accept projects submissions from all U.S. House members for consideration. This process is separate and distinct from the House Committee on Appropriations’ process for considering Community Project Funding requests.


As part of the reformed process to ensure transparency in this process, all requests submitted by Rep. DeFazio are posted below and will also be posted with all other Member Designated Project submissions on the Committee’s website after the deadline. Per the new requirements, Rep. DeFazio has also certified that neither he nor his immediate family have a financial interest in any of the project submissions. You can read more about the new requirements to ensure transparency, accountability, and oversight here.

Project Requirements:

The Committee requires all Member submissions to include the following information for each project requested:

  • Documentation of whether the project is on the State, Tribal, or territorial transportation improvement program (STIP); and on the metropolitan transportation improvement program (TIP), if applicable
  • Sources of funding for the full share of the cost of the project beyond the amount requested
  • Letter(s) of support from the State department of transportation, or local government, transit agency, or other non-Federal sponsor
  • A description of the process that has been or will be followed to provide an opportunity for public comment on the project
  • Project phase (e.g. Planning, Final Design, Construction)
  • NEPA category of action (e.g. Categorical Exclusion, Environmental Assessment, Environmental Impact Statement)
  • Status of environmental review
  • Whether the project has received Federal funding previously, and if so the source and amount
  • Certification that the Member, their spouse, and other immediate family members do not have a financial interest in the project
