Carbon Reduction Program (CRP)

Carbon Reduction Program

The Carbon Reduction Program (CRP) provides flexible funding that may be used by states and localities for projects that reduce transportation related carbon dioxide emissions.  Each year, approximately $1.4 million is available in CRP funding for the Greater Des Moines region. Projects will be evaluated based on carbon reduction using the Federal Highway Administrations Emissions Calculator Toolkit.

In this application cycle, the MPO will award a total of around $5.5-6.9 million in CRP funding that is available for FFY 2025-2029.
