On May 20, 2020, FHWA issued guidance on the implementation of Earmark repurposing provisions contained in the Department of Transportation Appropriations Act, 2020.

The Department of Transportation Appropriations Act, 2020 allows States to repurpose any earmark that was designated on or before September 30, 2009, 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 (New for 2020). 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 2020.

The Project Lists shown below specify the total amount of Obligational Authority (OA) available. The total amount of OA is made up of Special OA and Formula OA (Additional Apportionment, No Special Obligational Authority).
