National Transportation Enhancements Clearinghouse
T ransportation Enhancements: FY 2007 Summary of Nationwide Spending is a report prepared annually by the National Transportation Enhancements Clearinghouse (NTEC)� This report provides an overview of how states spent Transportation Enhancements (TE) funds from fiscal year (FY) 1992 through the end of FY 2007 with a detailed emphasis on the past seven years.
These dates span the period of time since TE was established as a dedicated funding source in the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act (ISTEA) of 1991. Funding of TE continued in the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21), which officially ran through September 30, 2003. Funding of TE continued through a series of short-term extensions. The Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU) continued TE funding when enacted on August 10, 2005.
NTEC uses benchmark figures to assess the status of TE spending at the national and state level. The report also addresses the distribution of these funds across the 12 eligible TE activities, which are detailed on page 18. This NTEC report provides an assessment of how TE activities are being funded and, ultimately, implemented for the benefit of communities across the nation.
