Federal Transportation Improvement Program (FTIP)

The Federal Transportation Improvement Program (FTIP) is a federally mandated four-year program of all surface transportation projects that will receive federal funding or are subject to a federally required action. As the Metropolitan Planning Agency (MPO) for the region, SJCOG is responsible for developing the FTIP for submittal to Caltrans and the federal funding agencies. SJCOG prepares and maintains the FTIP in partnership with our member agencies and in cooperation with state and federal agencies and the eight San Joaquin Valley counties.

This program lists every transportation project that will receive federal funds or that is subject to a federally required action, such as a review and approval of environmental documents. This means that many-but not all-transit, highway, local roadway, bicycle and pedestrian investments are included in the FTIP. The projects included in the FTIP have been found to be consistent with SJCOG's Regional Transportation Plan (RTP).

The FTIP must comply with three key tests. First, it must give the public the opportunity to comment. Second, it must demonstrate that the amount of dollars programmed (committed) to the projects does not exceed the amount of dollars estimated to be available. Therefore the FTIP includes a financial summary that demonstrates financial constraint, namely that sufficient financial capacity exists for programmed projects to be implemented. Third, it must conform to the State Implementation Plan for the region with consideration to federal Clean Air Act.

2023 Federal Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (FSTIP)

The Draft 2023 Federal Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (FSTIP) is now available for public review at the following website: 


The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) prepared the Draft 2023 Federal Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (FSTIP) in coordination with the Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) and the Regional Transportation Planning Agencies (RTPAs) in California.  The FSTIP is a federally mandated document required to be updated every two years.  The Draft 2023 FSTIP includes phases of capital and non-capital transportation projects prioritized to receive federal funding under Titles 23 and 49 of the United States Code during federal fiscal years 2023 through 2026.  The FSTIP also includes regionally significant projects regardless of the funding source. 

Each of the State’s eighteen MPOs prepares a Federal Transportation Improvement Program (FTIP), which includes federal, state, local, and transit projects within its boundary.  These FTIPs are included in the FSTIP by reference.

The Draft 2023 FSTIP is available for public review and comment beginning October 10, 2022 through October 31, 2022.  Please provide comments via email to jacqueline.kahrs@dot.ca.gov.
