The Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission works with other organizations throughout the Miami Valley to identify projects that may be eligible for federal funding. Through a committee decision, the projects are forwarded on to federal elected officials for deliberation. The purpose of this process is to establish a list of projects which benefit the Dayton Region to be submitted as requests for funding.
The partnership of MVRPC and other regional agencies has successfully obtained over $59 million dollars in federal funding, through this process. Click for a list of regionally significant projects awarded over the last several years.
MVRPC is the lead agency for Transportation projects and Government Services projects. The Transportation projects and Government Services projects are reviewed by review panels which categorize the proposed projects by the importance of the project and the impact the proposed project will have in the overall area. The list of projects is then sent to the MVRPC Board structure for final review and adoption and submittal to the Dayton Regional Priority and Advocacy Committee.
The Dayton Regional Priority Development and Advocacy Committee presents the approved project list to the Dayton region federal legislative delegations. Project sponsors who agree to participate in the process are expected to support overall project categorization.
