An overview of TIB's urban funding programs.
Overview
The TIB provides funding to cities with a population of 5,000 or more and counties with urban unincorporated areas through three grant programs:
  • Urban Arterial Program (UAP)
  • Urban Sidewalk Program (SP)
  • Arterial Preservation Program (APP)

  • Eligible projects must be located within the federally designated urban area and be in compliance with the Growth Management Act.

    Projects are selected annually on a competitive basis. Each program has distinct characteristics for the best suited project. Qualification and criteria are different within each program.

    Once selected, TIB staff provides grant oversight and acts as facilitators to bring projects to completion.
