On April 25, 2019, FHWA issued guidance on the implementation of Earmark repurposing provisions contained in the Department of Transportation Appropriations Act, 2019.

The Department of Transportation Appropriations Act, 2019 allows States to repurpose any earmark that was designated on or before September 30, 2008, 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 50 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 2019.
