ISTEA-STP

Surface Transportation Program is a new block grant type program that may be used by the states and localities for any roads that are not functionally classified as local or rural minor collectors. Such roads are now collectively referred to as Federal-Aid roads. Uses also include transit capital projects. Total funding for the STP is authorized over the 6 year period of the ISTEA and consists of 58 percent from the Mass Transit Fund of the Highway Trust Fund.
