The FDOT District Offices coordinate with the Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPO) or
the County Government in non-urbanized areas within the respective District to solicit new
applications. The Environmental Management Office in the FDOT Central Office coordinates
with other state and federal agencies to solicit new application.
The request for new applications generally follows the annual updating of the FDOT five
year work program that is done in cooperation with MPO's and Counties. There may be times
when the solicitation for new applications is less frequent than annually because of a
backlog of projects or because of inadequate funds in a particular area (MPO area, County,
or District). It is recommended that potential applicants contact the appropriate FDOT
District Enhancement Coordinator and/or the appropriate MPO for projects located in
urbanized areas or the County for projects outside of urbanized areas to determine the
current application cycle for the area where the project is located.
Applications are submitted to MPO's (for projects in urbanized areas)or to the respective
County for project ranking or prioritization. The MPO or County coordinates with the FDOT
District for funding and inclusion in the Department's work program. A project sponsored
by an Indian Tribal Council may be submitted directly to the respective District Office.
Applications for statewide transportation enhancement projects are submitted to the
Environmental Management Office in the FDOT Central Office.
