HEPMPO seeks to improve transportation infrastructure throughout its planning region by the implementation of projects utilizing MPO-specific federal suballocated funds. HEPMPO is responsible for allocating federal Surface Transportation Block Grant Program (STBG) and Carbon Reduction Program (CRP) suballocated funding for eligible projects.

The HEPMPO Project Selection Guidelines for Federal Suballocated Funds serve as a guide for project eligibility and the application process for the purpose of allocating federal suballocated funds for the HEP metropolitan planning area in West Virginia, comprising Berkeley and Jefferson Counties. These guidelines were adopted by the HEPMPO Interstate Council on August 16, 2023. They are subject to change upon adoption of any changes by the Interstate Council.
