CDCC Funding Opportunities

Capital Region Transportation Council

The Capital Region Transportation Council (The Transportation Council) is the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the Albany-Schenectady-Troy Metropolitan area.  The Transportation Council is not only our gracious host but also maintains the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) for the MPO area.

The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a multi-year program of transportation projects that implements the products of the planning process described in New Visions 2050, the Transportation Council’s long-range Metropolitan Transportation Plan. Federal regulations require that transit, highway and other transportation improvement projects within the Capital District metropolitan area be included in this TIP if these projects are to be eligible for federal capital or operating funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL). The program should also include, for informational purposes, non-federally funded projects and New York State Thruway Authority projects located in the region.

We are lucky to be so close to the New York State Energy Research and Authority (NYSERDA) headquarters here in Albany. NYSERDA is a public benefit corporation that aims to help New York meet its energy goals: reducing energy consumption, promoting the use of renewable energy sources, and protecting the environment. NYSERDA is primarily funded by state rate payers through the System Benefits Charge. Many of our members have benefited from NYSERDA’s funding programs. Below are links to current, upcoming and closed funding opportunities through NYSERDA.
