The Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement (CMAQ) Program provides federal funds to projects and programs that help nonattainment and maintenance areas comply with air quality standards. MAG conducts a project evaluation to estimate the emissions reductions and cost-effectiveness of proposed CMAQ projects. MAG calculates the estimated emissions reductions and cost-effectiveness of each CMAQ funded project. The project evaluations assist technical and modal committees prior to recommending projects to be added to the Transportation Improvement Program.
The Paving of Unpaved Road Program is funded with CMAQ federal aid along with member agency local funding. Paving of unpaved roads assists with controlling re-entrained particulate matter (PM) dust of 10 microns or less. MAG, through assistance with member agencies, completes inventories of both public and private unpaved roads in the region.

In an effort to make information delivery faster, MAG has implemented an e-mail notification system that will make it easier to receive documents such as agendas, minutes and reports. Through a free subscription service called GovDelivery, MAG member agencies and the public will have better access to information that is posted on the MAG Web site.
The subscription service monitors specific Web pages for changes, and when a change is detected, the service sends an e-mail to subscribers notifying them of the change. Users can choose to subscribe to as many of the pages as they wish. There are about 130 monitored pages on the MAG Web site.
As a subscriber, you can choose not only what information you receive, you can also choose how often you receive it—immediately, daily, or weekly.
To subscribe, simply click on the link on the page that says “Sign up to receive email updates.” Users can also click on a Quick Subscribe link on various pages to see a full list and subscribe to any of the MAG pages. To subscribe, only a few pieces of information will be required, such as e-mail address, delivery preferences and organization.
Look for the red envelope icon on pages of interest.
