On behalf of the Governor and per state law and executive order, the GRTA Board approves the allocation of state and federal transportation resources in metro Atlanta via the Atlanta Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), the federally-required planning process that allocates funds to the highest-priority, near-term transportation projects.
In order to ensure that transportation investments are strategically allocated, GRTA has collaborated with its planning partners to establish a performance-based framework for the development and review of the TIP. This framework is now being used as part of the Atlanta Regional Commission’s development of the TIP list and also GRTA’s review and approval of every TIP-related action for the Atlanta region. The result will be more focused allocation of state and federal transportation funds on cost-effective solutions that improve reliability of commutes to major employment centers, increase employers’ access to skilled workers, and reduce the costs of congestion.
