Community Transportation Program

DOT&PF Announces 2022-2025 CTP & TAP Community Project Awards

Below is the list of projects slated to receive "Intent to Award" letters from DOT&PF. However, the execution of final grant agreements is contingent upon the approval of the 2024-2027 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). The STIP, currently awaiting approval from the Federal Highways Administration and Federal Transit Administration, provides detailed information on funding amounts and project specifics and can be reviewed here.

Transportation planners will soon engage with community officials to initiate the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) process for these projects. The MOA ensures effective collaboration and coordination between DOT&PF and local stakeholders.

Final CTP Criteria

Program Purpose

The Community Transportation Program (CTP) is a competitive surface transportation program held every 3 years and administered by the Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities (DOT&PF). The CTP solicits community input, nominations, and project sponsorship. Development of projects includes identifying needs through public outreach and involvement, evaluating and scoring eligible projects by a board, and prioritizing and selecting projects to award. Awarded projects will be developed and managed by DOT&PF. This program does not issue grants to communities directly.

Examples of CTP projects would be ones that make new or maintain or improve existing surface transportation facilities, enhance travel and tourism, reduce wildlife-vehicle collisions, improve air quality, and projects that connect different types of transportation such as roads and trails. The State of Alaska, Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (DOT&PF), Program Development, is putting together guidance documents to assist in applying for the competitive programs.

There are two sets of criteria for this project nomination opportunity: 1) Urban and Rural, and 2) Remote. Communities not connected to the road system by road or ferry are considered Remote. All other communities are considered Urban and Rural.

State Competitive Process

The State is responsible for selecting projects submitted by eligible entities through a competitive process for all funds not suballocated to MPOs representing urbanized areas with populations greater than 50,000.

Eligible Projects

Example CTP projects for this solicitation include:

  • improve existing surface transportation facilities; improve or make new transportation facilities that provide access to important resources or connect communities; connect different types of transportation modes such as transit and trails or roads; enhance travel and tourism; electric vehicle charging infrastructure; reduction of wildlife-vehicle collisions, i.e., wildlife crossings.


2023 CTP Award Amounts

Program funding has been decreased under the 2024-2027 Statewide Transportation Improvement Plan (STIP) due to inflationary cost increases and high volume of needs.  Final funding amounts for CTP & TAP will be announced with FHWA approval of the STIP. CTP Projects are limited to two project submittals per public entity with a not-to-exceed federal share amount of $15,000,000, as determined through a DOT&PF certified estimate using recent unit costs and bid tabs from successful bids. DOT&PF is an eligible sponsor for CTP community roads.
