What is TIP?

The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a fiscally constrained financial plan of transportation projects approved to receive federal funding over the next four-years. Projects selected for the TIP are priorities for the region in all surface transportation areas including transit, roadway and highways, bicycle and pedestrian, preventative maintenance, rehabilitation and transportation operations.

The Houston-Galveston Area Council, the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for the eight-county Transportation Management Area, develops the TIP in a collaborative effort with local governments, transit and transportation agencies and the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).
