Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ)

Program Summary
The purpose of the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) program is to fund transportation projects or programs that will help reduce air pollution. Tulare County receives approximately $6.1 million a year in CMAQ funds.

Call for Projects
Periodically, TCAG announces a call for projects for CMAQ funds. During this time, member agencies are given the opportunity to submit candidate projects.

TCAG has approved CMAQ policies regarding how projects are selected and how those funds will be allocated. Cost effective projects shown to be the most successful at improving air quality are typically given funding priority.

Below is TCAG’s cost-effectiveness threshold policy document, and documentation on projects that have been selected to meet this goal.

For additional information on the CMAQ program, please contact TCAG by calling (559) 623-0450.
