Earmark Repurposing

2023 Earmark Repurposing


On July 31, 2023, FHWA issued guidance on the implementation of Earmark repurposing provisions contained in the Department of Transportation Appropriations Act, 2023.

The Department of Transportation Appropriations Act, 2023 allows States to repurpose any earmark that was designated anytime and is Less than 10 percent obligated or final vouchered and closed.

The repurposed funds may be obligated on a new or existing project in the State within 25 miles of the earmark designation. The project must be an eligible project under the Surface Transportation Block Grant Program (STBG). The Repurposing Provision is available to be applied in FY 2023.

This year, we received the guidance very late and we only have couple weeks to completed the Earmark Repurposing.
