Multimodal Transportation and Mitigation Options Fund (MMOF)

Program Overview

Eligible projects are awarded Multimodal Transportation and Mitigation Options Fund (MMOF) money under the Local MMOF Program by the urban Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPO) or the rural Transportation Planning Regions (TPRs).

Sponsors of eligible projects that are interested in seeking funding through the Local MMOF Program should contact their respective planning organizations to engage in those selection processes. See below for the current application schedules and deadlines. A map of MPOs/TPRs and contact information can be found here

Program Goals

The MMOF seeks to fund multimodal transportation projects and operations throughout the state because, in addition to the general benefits that it provides to all Coloradans, a complete and integrated multimodal transportation system:

(a) benefits seniors by making aging in place more feasible.

(b) benefits residents of rural areas and Disproportionately Impacted (DI) Communities by providing them with flexible public transportation services.

(c) provides enhanced mobility for persons with disabilities.

(d)  provides safe routes to schools for children, AND

(e) Reduces emissions of air pollutants and Greenhouse Gases that contribute to adverse environmental effects, including but not limited to Climate Change and adverse Human Health Effects.

Match Requirements

Local MMOF Program funded projects require a 50% funding match, such that at least 50% of an awarded project’s budget must come from other sources.  Those sources may be from any federal, state, or local program.  However, the Transportation Commission has granted, by formula, reduced or eliminated match requirements for certain local governments. See the program guidance in the supporting documents for details.
