On behalf of the Governor, and per state law and executive order, the Georgia Regional Transportation Authority (GRTA) Board is responsible for review and approval of the Atlanta Regional Commission’s (ARC) Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The TIP is a federally required document that allocates local, state and federal funding for near-term transportation investment. The TIP also reflects any near-term transportation projects that may have significant impacts on improving the region’s air quality.
To ensure transportation investments are strategically allocated, GRTA collaborated with state and regional planning partners to establish a performance-based framework for the development and review of the TIP. This framework is used as part of ARC’s TIP development process, and it informs GRTA’s review and action on the TIP. The resulting TIP project list allocates state and federal transportation funds for cost-effective solutions that connect people, jobs, and communities across the Atlanta region.
