Grant Information - Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement (CMAQ) Program

The Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement (CMAQ) program provides funding for transportation projects that reduce mobile source air emissions (e.g., cars, trucks, construction equipment) in areas that do not meet federal air quality health standards for ozone, microscopic particles or carbon monoxide. Federal CMAQ funds are apportioned to the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) to be invested by the state and local metropolitan planning organizations in projects and programs that help achieve and maintain federal air quality health standards.
