Funded Projects & Programs
The Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2022-2031 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), approved in September 2021 by SJTPO’s Policy Board, includes State and local highway projects, as well as regional, statewide, and transit programs proposed over the next 10 years. Over $1.0 billion of FFY 2022-2031 Federal and State funding is specifically identified for transportation improvements within SJTPO’s four-county region.
The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a list of projects and programs scheduled to be implemented over a period of at least four years (ten years in New Jersey). Transportation projects must be included in the TIP to receive most types of federal funding. The TIP provides a mechanism for locally-elected officials and agency staff to review the region’s capital programming. It represents a consensus among MPO members and other major transportation interests in the region as to what improvements should have priority for available funds.
Planning to Implementation
The TIP links the transportation planning process to implementation. Central to this process is RTP 2050, the regional transportation plan for the SJTPO region, which provides a framework for guiding investment decisions over a 20-year period. It includes both long and short-range strategies and actions leading to the development of an integrated transportation system that facilitates the efficient movement of people and goods.
Project Evaluation Process
SJTPO has a Project Evaluation Process, updated as a part of the RTP 2050 development, that is used to score and evaluate projects that are adopted as a part of the TIP and RTP. The development of this updated process revolved around two central elements, first more closely tying evaluation criteria to the Performance-Based Planning Process, RTP Goals (Planning Factors), and SJTPO Planning Initiatives. Second, a Pre-Evaluation Screening Process, which evaluates projects, not simply to passively assess the quality of the project, but actively encourage improvements to projects to better align with regional, state, and federal guidance and priorities, such as safety, Complete Streets, Environmental Justice, as well as other priorities.

Statewide Transportation Improvement Plan
The STIP serves as a comprehensive, one-volume guide to major transportation improvements planned in the State of New Jersey. It is also a reference document required under federal regulations for use by the FHWA and the FTA in approving the expenditure of federal funds for transportation projects in New Jersey. NJDOT’s approved FFY 2022-2025 STIP can be accessed on their website.
The FFY 2022-2025 electronic Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (e-STIP) is an application that provides current information contained in the STIP as the program is modified and amended.
Amendments & Modifications
Once a ten-year TIP is adopted by the SJTPO Policy Board, approved by the Governor, and the State TIP is approved by the federal government (FHWA and FTA), there are certain procedures established for making any changes to the TIP. These procedures are outlined in a joint Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the DVRPC, NJTPA, SJTPO, NJ TRANSIT and NJDOT. A document summarizing all amendments and modifications to the current FFY 2020-2029 TIP (in a chronological listing) can be found below.

Reports on federally obligated funding amounts for individual projects help provide information about project delivery status during a given fiscal year. “Obligation” or federal authorization is a legal commitment: the Federal government’s promise to pay for the Federal share of a project’s eligible cost. Keep in mind that:
- projects for which funds have been obligated are not necessarily completed in the TIP program year;
- the amount of obligation in a fiscal year will not necessarily equal the total cost of the project; and
- the amount of obligated funds may vary from the amount estimated in the TIP.
