The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) will provide Georgia DOT with $932 million for federal highway projects under the Statewide Planning Program. Sixty seven percent (67%) will go directly to Georgia DOT. Thirty percent (30%) of Georgia’s highway stimulus funds must be sub-allocated to Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs) in the state, who will determine projects to be funded from their allocations. The remaining 3% will allocated for transportation enhancement projects. Click here for more detail on funding allocation.
