Indianapolis MPO Technical Assistance Program (IMTAP)


The IMPO is hosting a call for projects for the Indianapolis MPO Technical Assistance Program (IMTAP). The program will provide funding to local public agencies to complete plans or studies and support local or regional planning efforts. The overall goal of the program is to support the implementation of the IMPO’s Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) and improve the region’s performance on federal performance measures.

The IMTAP program successfully funded projects in 2017 and 2018 providing seventeen plans for sixteen jurisdictions within the region. The 2022 call for projects is intended to continue the program’s success with updated goals, project focus areas, and selection criteria in relation to the adopted MTP.

Past Local Planning Studies

The Indianapolis MPO has previously provided federal planning dollars to fund local planning projects within the Metropolitan Planning Area. Funded studies were chosen via a competitive project selection process. As these plans are completed, they will be added to this website under Local Plans.

  • In 2017, the MPO approved funding for seven local planning studies.
  • In 2018, the MPO approved funding for ten local planning studies.
