The Annual Project Listing is a report that provides an overview of the transportation planning and programming process and the resulting federal funding obligation. An obligation is the federal government’s commitment to pay its fair share of the project cost. This obligation happens at the time where the project is executed and the State or Grantee requests the funds. For Federal Transit Administration projects (FTA), obligation occurs when the FTA grant is awarded. In summary, an obligated project is one that has been approved by the federal government for reimbursement. Obligated projects in this report are broken down in to four categories; highways, transit, bicycle and pedestrian, and grouped projects.
