About The Program

The Charlotte Regional Transportation Organization (CRTPO) receives direct attributable funds, also known as discretionary grants, to be allocated to member jurisdictions for specific projects on a competitive basis. Project selection is guided by the CRTPO Board-approved Discretionary Grants Program Policy Guide. The Guide prioritizes projects in the region that will utilize federal funds. Selected projects will be added to CRTPO’s Metropolitan Transportation Program (MTP) and adopted into the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).
