Transportation Project Solicitations:

Transportation Economic Development (TED) & Safety And Mobility (SAM)

Interchange ProgramsInformational Meetings

October 2010

Page 2: Transportation Project Solicitations: Transportation Economic Development (TED) & Safety And Mobility (SAM) Interchange Programs Informational Meetings.

TED Overview

• New collaboration between MnDOT and DEED for highway improvement projects that support economic development

• Seeking projects that will assist development of new business or expanding existing businesses – Target industries: manufacturing, technology, warehousing and

distribution, research and development, agricultural processing, bioscience, tourism/recreation, or does it support industrial park development or mixed use-high density multimodal development

• Looking for projects that will improve the statewide transportation network

Page 3: Transportation Project Solicitations: Transportation Economic Development (TED) & Safety And Mobility (SAM) Interchange Programs Informational Meetings.

TED Funding

• $39 million available– $30 million state trunk highway bonds legislatively

designated for interchanges– $5 million general trunk highway bonds which can be

spent on any projects– $3 million through the Greater Minnesota Business

Development Public Infrastructure (BDPI) Program– $1 million through the Innovative BDPI Program

Page 4: Transportation Project Solicitations: Transportation Economic Development (TED) & Safety And Mobility (SAM) Interchange Programs Informational Meetings.

TED Funding

• $10 Million maximum award (BDPI limit is lower)

• Up to 70% of total infrastructure project costs– Max grant could be less based on state law and policies

• Remaining funds from private and other sources

• Funding split between Metro and Greater MN– Greater MN proposals reviewed separately from Metro

Page 5: Transportation Project Solicitations: Transportation Economic Development (TED) & Safety And Mobility (SAM) Interchange Programs Informational Meetings.

TED Funding

• Trunk highway bonds used for eligible costs in trunk highway

• BDPI funds required to be spent outside trunk highway

• BDPI funds require 50% match• Innovative BDPI funds can be used for

public buildings and equipment

TED Funding Timeline

• October 11 – Solicitation announced, application available

• October 25-28 – Informational sessions held• December 10 – Phase 1 applications due• December 23 – Phase 1 applications selected• January – June 2011 – Phase 2 application and

confirm project readiness

Page 7: Transportation Project Solicitations: Transportation Economic Development (TED) & Safety And Mobility (SAM) Interchange Programs Informational Meetings.

TED Eligible Applicants

• Must be a government entity as defined by state law– Trunk Highway funds eligible applicants include any

government entity– Greater Minnesota BDPI eligible applicants include

statutory home rule charter cities and counties located outside the metropolitan area. (Chisago County is eligible)

Page 8: Transportation Project Solicitations: Transportation Economic Development (TED) & Safety And Mobility (SAM) Interchange Programs Informational Meetings.

TED Application Process

• Phase 1 (due December 10)– Determine eligibility– Rank projects– Determine grant funding awards

• Phase 2 (January–June 2011)– Approved Phase 1 applicants– Complete additional predevelopment activities– Final proposal to meet compliance requirements

Page 9: Transportation Project Solicitations: Transportation Economic Development (TED) & Safety And Mobility (SAM) Interchange Programs Informational Meetings.

TED Phase 1 Application Scoring

• Eligibility Criteria– Must answer yes to all to be eligible

• Prioritizing Criteria– 35 Points – Transportation System– 35 Points – Economic Development– 20 Points – Financial Plan– 10 Points - Readiness

Page 10: Transportation Project Solicitations: Transportation Economic Development (TED) & Safety And Mobility (SAM) Interchange Programs Informational Meetings.

TED Application

• General Information– Basic applicant and project information– Brief project narrative– Project Costs (just transportation and infrastructure

costs)– Project funding sources and status of commitment

Page 11: Transportation Project Solicitations: Transportation Economic Development (TED) & Safety And Mobility (SAM) Interchange Programs Informational Meetings.

TED Application

• Transportation System (35 Points)– Enhances safety of statewide transportation system– Reduces future crashes– Improves mobility access– Supports modal integration

Page 12: Transportation Project Solicitations: Transportation Economic Development (TED) & Safety And Mobility (SAM) Interchange Programs Informational Meetings.

TED Application

• Economic Development (35 points)– Leads to private investment and job creation/retention in

manufacturing, technology, or other identified business types

– Names of impacted businesses– North American Industry Classification System (NAICS)

Codes– Jobs created in 2 & 5 years– Wages of created jobs– Building and equipment investments within 2 years– Effect on tax base

TED Application

• Financial Plan (20 points)– Identify all funding sources– If not committed, explain steps to get commitment

• Project Readiness (10 points)– Can project be let by 1/1/14– Project schedule (earlier the better)– Current status for planned development (including

environ.)– Community support from private and public partners –

(ATP and MPO letters of support in Phase 1; Formal approval in Phase 2)

TED Application Tips

• Retail is not an eligible business• Businesses should not be overly speculative• Higher private and/or non-TED leverage will score

better• More secure leverage will score better• Mature projects with developed planning will

score better• Not just interchanges• Must be state trunk highway, if not maybe BDPI• For NAICS see
