Iowa Clean Air Attainment Program (ICAAP)

Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST Act), the current Federal Transportation Reauthorization Act, continued the Congestion Mitigation Air Quality Improvement (CMAQ) program to provide a flexible funding source to State and local governments for transportation projects and programs to help meet the requirements of the Clean Air Act. Funding is available to reduce congestion and improve air quality for areas that do not meet the National Ambient Air Quality Standards for ozone, carbon monoxide, or particulate matter (nonattainment areas) and for former nonattainment areas that are now in compliance (maintenance areas).

Indicative of the Congressional intent for creating the CMAQ Program, the Iowa DOT Commission established ICAAP in 1995. Iowa DOT administers the ICAAP on a statewide competitive application basis and awards federal funds to projects with the highest potential for reducing transportation-related congestion and air pollution. Project applications may be submitted by cities, counties, public transit agencies, and state and federal agencies. Private nonprofit organizations and individuals who want to apply for funding must have a public agency as a co-sponsor.

Proposed projects are evaluated and ranked by a project evaluation committee comprising representatives from the Iowa DOT's Systems Planning Bureau, Iowa Department of Natural Resources, Iowa Public Transit Authority, MPOs, and RPAs. The Iowa DOT Commission has final project selection authority. Under FAST Act, Iowa DOT earmarked and administers $4.0 million of CMAQ funds annually for ICAAP.
