TRPC has identified four criteria that link to existing regional transportation goals and policies. Each criterion is worth 2 points for a maximum possible score of eight points on a project in the Urban Medium Geographic area, and six points for a project located in the Urban Small and Rural Geographic areas. Applying a Regional Priority ranking offers both applicants and policy makers a transparent and performance-based approach to the evaluation and selection of priority regional projects for funding awards.
- Efficient use of Federal Funds.
- Sustainable Thurston Urban Corridors and Centers (applies only to Urban Medium Geographic Category).
- Greenhouse Gas Emission Reduction Goal.
