Transportation Funding Programs

Transportation measures are critical to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, improving public health, and linking households to basic needs and opportunities.

Pathways for Reducing Transportation Emissions

Strategies to reduce transportation emissions fall into three primary categories:

  1. Electrify cars, buses, and trucks (coupled with decarbonized electricity) and provide charging infrastructure
  2. Reduce reliance on single-occupancy vehicles by supporting alternative modes of transit (walking, biking, transit, car-sharing)
  3. Land use changes that reduce vehicle-miles-traveled by fostering denser development near transit and providing housing close to workplaces.

Many state agencies fund one or more types of transportation-related investments. Most multisector programs fund projects with a transportation component, as noted in our tables depicting multisector programs. Below, we organize the transportation-specific investments by the type of recipient (individual, households, and businesses versus programs available to local governments and communities) and by more discrete funding decisions, including a sampling of pilot projects and one-time funding decisions.
