These funds can be used for highway, transit, and non-motorized transportation projects. NIRPC's TIP includes projects undertaken by municipalities, counties, transit operators, and the State of Indiana. Federal planning regulations guide the preparation and development of the TIP documents.

It is anticipated that action will be taken at the April 4, 2023 meeting of the Technical Planning Committee, followed by the April 20, 2023 meeting of the NIRPC Commission.
