What is the TIP?
The Transportation Improvement Program or TIP is a five year plan that identifies, prioritizes and allocates funding for transportation projects. The TIP is the "short-range" component of the MPO's Long Range Transportation Plan. The TIP is updated annually with adoption by the MPO Board in June of each year. Development of the TIP is a continuous process involving agency staff and public involvement. Prior to adoption of the TIP in June, the MPO Board also adopts priorities the preceding September. Both of these decisions are made during an advertised public meeting with opportunity for comment.
The five years of the TIP are based on the federal fiscal year, with the current fiscal year (FY 2017) beginning on October 1, 2016 and ending on September 30, 2017. The current TIP document includes projects programmed by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) for FY 2017 – FY 2021 based on priorities adopted by the MPO on August 5, 2015. This TIP document was reviewed and approved by the Citizens Advisory Committee and Technical Advisory Committee at their May 2016 meetings, and adopted by the MPO at a public hearing on June 22, 2016. This adopted program became effective on October 1, 2016.
