Idaho’s Transportation Enhancement Program Overview
The Transportation Enhancement (TE) Program is a state-administered, federally funded program that
provides money for projects and facilities that increase the transportation options and ―enhance‖ the
quality of life for communities. The Safe Accountable Flexible Efficient Transportation Equity Act:
A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU) allocates 10% of Surface Transportation Program funding to
address transportation-related needs that the Surface Transportation Program would not ordinarily
fund. For FY2011, Idaho‘s funds are estimated to be $5.5 million—however, SAFETEA-LU funding
is not guaranteed past FY2009. Idaho‘s TE Program is a statewide competitive program (see
Appendix C for scoring criteria) that distributes federal funds to projects that strengthen the cultural,
aesthetic, or environmental value of Idaho‘s surface transportation system while focusing on
improving the transportation experience in and through local communities.

Anyone may apply for TE funding; however, a governmental or tribal agency must agree to sponsor
the project. Projects need to be completed within three years with construction occurring in federal
FY2011 (Oct. 1, 2010, to Sept. 30, 2011). Funding for the design, right-of-way, and environmental
processes will be available prior to the construction year. TE projects must also follow all applicable
federal environmental and right-of-way procedures. If a project is not ready for contracting in its
scheduled construction year and the project is dropped from the program, the sponsor may be
responsible for all costs incurred up to that date, and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA)
may require reimbursement of all expended federal-aid funds. In addition, the sponsor will need to
reapply for the project during another Enhancement programming cycle.

Projects can qualify for up to $500,000 in federal-aid funding and must have a strong tie to surface
transportation. Idaho‘s TE Program groups the federally allowable activities into three major
categories with funding targets for each category set by the Idaho Transportation Board:

Bicycle and Pedestrian—40%-70% of available funding
      Facilities for pedestrians and bicyclists
      Safety and educational activities for pedestrians and bicyclists
      Preservation of abandoned railway corridors
Scenic and Environmental—15%-30% of available funding
      Acquisition of scenic easements and scenic sites
      Scenic or historic highway programs
      Landscaping and other scenic beautification
      Control and removal of outdoor advertising
      Mitigation to address water pollution due to highway runoff
      Mitigation to address vehicle-caused wildlife mortality
Historic—15%-30% of available funding
      Acquisition of historic sites
      Archaeological planning and research
      Scenic or historic highway programs
      Historic preservation related to surface transportation
      Establishment of transportation museums
      Rehabilitation and operation of historic transportation buildings, structures, or facilities




ITD 1005 Transportation Enhancement Program Application for FY 2011                       1
Through ITD oversight, the TE Program provides reimbursement for qualified expenses as a project
progresses. The sponsor agrees to fund all maintenance costs after the project is completed. Each
project is eligible for a 92.66% federal-aid reimbursement up to $500,000 with the remaining 7.34%
the responsibility of the sponsor (the sponsor‘s ―match‖).

       Example: A project with a total cost of $400,000 would qualify for $370,640 of federal-
                aid ($400,000 x .9266) and the balance of $29,360 would be the sponsor‘s
                match ($400,000 x .0734). A project requesting the maximum $500,000 in
                federal aid would require a $39,607 match.

Any project costs over $539,607 are considered non-participating (outside the Enhancement project)
and must be funded by the sponsor.

Applying for Transportation Enhancement funding is a two-step process. First, a letter of intent to
apply for the current funding cycle was due by June 30, 2007. Second, for those who submitted a
letter of intent, applications are due by January 31, 2008. No applications will be accepted unless a
letter of intent was received by ITD. If no comment was received subsequent to submitting a letter
of intent, the project appeared to be eligible. However, as planning for the project progresses during
the application process, eligibility for part or all of a project may become questionable. A project can
have non-eligible features, but they are considered non-participating (outside the Enhancement project)
and must be fully funded by the sponsor. For additional information about the program, project
eligibility, and more, consider these websites:

          Idaho Transportation Enhancement Program:
           http://itd.idaho.gov/planning/te/
          National Transportation Enhancement Clearinghouse: http://www.enhancements.org/
          Federal Transportation Enhancement:
           http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/environment/te/index.htm

Any further questions should be directed to your listed ITD District or MPO Enhancement
Program Coordinator (see Appendix F).

Project location will determine the method of application submission. Projects located within a
metropolitan planning organization (MPO) boundary will submit applications to ITD through the MPO
and conform to the MPOs application timetable and process. For projects located outside an MPO,
applications must be submitted directly to the ITD District Office and conform to the district‘s
application timetable and process. Upon request, the MPOs and/or districts will provide minor
application assistance; however, they will not fill out the application for you nor provide services as a
consultant. Application forms including instructions begin on page 6, and the instructions should be
read thoroughly before completing the forms.

                              Instructions for Section 2 Project Cost Itemization

                                                                                            Return to Section 2 Form

Accurate estimation of project costs is essential to the successful outcome of your project. If your application is
successful, your award of federal-aid funds will be the maximum you will receive for this project. In addition, if your
project is on a federal-aid route, certain federal laws will apply that may affect the cost of the project (see Appendix
B).

Project Name: Enter the name of the project as supplied in Section 1. Also, list the District the project is located.
Determine if your project is located on a Federal-Aid Route. If your project is on a Federal-Aid Route, certain
federal rules apply, and a summary of these rules can be found in Appendix B. For Federal Aid Route designation (as
appropriate), consult the District Transportation Enhancement Coordinator.

Preliminary Engineering by Consultant (PC): Calculate the PC for your project. This will include design and
revisions, geologic and hydraulic studies, environmental reviews and clearances, and local administrative costs. The
PC will equal 20% of total construction costs and should be at least $50,000. The district TE coordinator must
approve any amount under $50,000.

Enhancement Projects that Provide Information and Interpretation: Enter any costs associated with scenic,
environmental, or historic projects.

Right-of-Way (ROW): If real property must be acquired or easements obtained, enter related costs here. ROW
takes time to acquire. Provide a letter from the owner expressing their willingness to sell the property. Federal laws
apply to the purchase of property (see Appendix B).

Construction: If the project involves construction, itemize related costs here. Use current costs and inflate these
costs by increasing them by 15% (multiply the quantity by the unit price and multiply this total by 1.15 and enter in
the last column). For more information on unit prices, the Annual Average Unit Price Report is available at
http//itd.idaho.gov/business/business.htm or at the district office. Line 49, ITD Administrative Costs, provide for
project administration and review. This cost varies from $2,000-$10,000 depending on the complexity, size of
budget, or funding structure of the project. Once you have the rest of your project cost estimates, check with your
ITD District contact for the amount required here. On line 50, add lines 1, 8, 13, and lines 46 through 49 to figure the
total cost of the project. Enter this amount in Box A of the Cost Summary in Section 1 as well.

Match Details: Enter the amount of cash being contributed to the project outside of federal-aid. Identify the source
of these funds as well. Include non-cash contributions here and reference the line item of the Construction section
these contributions are listed in (for more information on in-kind contributions, see Appendix D). Add total cash and
non-cash contributions. This amount must agree with Box E in the Cost Summary of Section 1.

Cost Estimate Developed By: Enter the name and contact information of the individual or firm who developed the
cost estimate.

   The fair market value of the non-monetary contributions discussed in Table 2.1 must be
   determined and documented in order for the credit to be applied as non-Federal match. Also, the
   value of the public or private contribution must be included in the total project cost—the sponsor
   cannot use this value as a credit towards the required non-Federal share of the remaining project
   costs and to reduce the cost of the project at the same time.
