The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is issuing a Call for Exchanges as part of the Federal Aid Buyout Program based on Public Act (PA) 49 of 2022.
The Federal Aid Buyout Program is a voluntary program which allows local agencies eligible to receive federal aid transportation funds under the Surface Transportation Block Grant Program (STBG) to exchange those federal funds with MDOT for state transportation dollars. The purpose of the Federal Aid Buyout Program is to allow flexibility and enable the most efficient use of federal highway aid and other transportation dollars.
Exchange requests must be e-mailed to MDOT-FederalAidBuyout@michigan.gov. Form # 2926 must be completed, signed, and attached to the exchange request e-mail. A separate form and e-mail must be submitted for each project that a local agency wishes to exchange. The call for exchanges will start on June 21, 2022, at 10:00 am Eastern Time.
More details are included in the Call for Exchanges letter and the Federal Buyout Program Guidelines.
All of the materials here are also being posted to the MDOT Local Agencies Program website. Local Agency Program (michigan.gov)
If you have any questions about the program after reading the materials, please send them via e-mail to MDOT-FederalAidBuyout@michigan.gov , or call Don Mayle at 517-243-8589.
