Federal & State Certifications

Federal Certification

Every four years, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) conduct a Federal Certification Review of the Palm Beach TPA. The main purpose of the review is to certify that the TPA is satisfactorily meeting the planning requirements as defined in Federal laws and regulations. This process also provides FHWA and FTA the opportunity to add value to the TPA’s planning process through the sharing of best practices, techniques and/or technology.

The TPA received its current Federal Certification in August 2023. The presentations from the TPA to the Federal Certification Review team are provided below.

State Certification

Pursuant to 23 CFR 450.336(a), the TPA and the State (through the Florida Department of Transportation) conduct a joint review, evaluation and certification concurrent with the submittal of the entire proposed Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) that the metropolitan planning process is being carried out in accordance with all applicable requirements.

In Florida, FDOT chooses to conduct the joint certification process annually. The final certification packages are provided below.
