Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) Improvement Program

CMAQ Air Quality

Georgia DOT is responsible for the administration of the CMAQ program in the State of Georgia. The CMAQ program is a federally funded program authorized under the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST Act) as part of § 1114; 23 U.S.C. 149. Georgia is eligible to receive CMAQ funds due to violations of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for ozone and Particular Matter (PM) 2.5. GDOT is responsible for distributing the funds to the nonattainment MPOs through the CMAQ distribution formula, verifying projects selected meet the CMAQ requirements outlined in the Interim Program Guidance dated November 12, 2013, and submitting the CMAQ Report to FHWA on an annual basis.
