Project Initiation Pool (PIP)

MAG Project Initiation Pool PIP

The Project Initiation Pool provides federal funding to MAG member agencies to pay ADOT fees to initiate the review of federally funded projects. It is open to all MAG member agencies with federally funded projects that are awarded through MAG and that are not part of the half-cent funded life-cycle programs.

The funding is available each year from October 1 through December 31. The amount of funding provided per project is $2,829 with a $171 matching requirement. This funding will be used by ADOT to assign project numbers and staff, conduct a kick off meeting, begin the development of an IGA and any other review tasks needed to clear the project for federal authorization.

To use this funding, the member agency will need to contact ADOT local government staff, sign a three-page contract and provide the local match. For more details please see the documents below:
