Project Development

The Project Development Program was created to assist COMPASS member agencies in securing transportation funding. The Project Development Program transforms member agency needs into well-defined projects with cost estimates, purpose and need statements, environmental scans, and public involvement plans to ensure readiness for funding applications. Well-defined and scoped projects strengthen grant applications and, once funded, increase the probability of projects to be delivered on time and on budget.

COMPASS accepts Phase I funding applications any time throughout the year. For detailed information about the application process, visit the Resource Development and Funding page.

Several consulting firms with a wide range of expertise have been pre-screened by COMPASS to conduct project development work in partnership with COMPASS staff. As projects are selected for the program, they are matched with the consulting firm(s) with the appropriate expertise, based on the type of project and project needs. Projects entering the program one year will be ready to submit grant applications and compete for funds the following year.
