Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Program (CMAQ)

The purpose of the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement (CMAQ) Program is to fund transportation projects or programs that will contribute to attainment of maintenance of national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS).  Funding can be expended on projects to reduce ozone precursor emissions, (including nitrogen oxides (NOx) and volatile organic compounds (VOC)), carbon monoxide (CO), and particulate matter (PM) emissions or PM precursor emissions from transportation.  This program will also assist in meeting the intent of SB 375, also known as the Sustainable Communities Protection Act of 2008.  The Kings County Transportation Commission, acting in its role as a Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), programs CMAQ funds for Kings County.
