The FHWA released its Carbon Reduction Program (CRP) Implementation Guidance, making paving activities eligible to receive their share of $6.4 billion in funding to reduce carbon emissions

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration announced the Carbon Reduction Program (CRP) that unlocks $6.4 billion in formula funding for states and localities over five years. Created under the President’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the CRP will help states develop carbon reduction strategies and address growing climate concerns. 

The Carbon Reduction Program will fund a wide range of projects designed to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from on-road highway sources — from installing infrastructure to support the electrification of freight vehicles or personal cars, to constructing Bus Rapid Transit corridors, to facilitating micro-mobility and biking.
