Funding the Capital Program

Metro’s capital funding comes from several sources: the federal government, Maryland, the District of Columbia, Northern Virginia jurisdictions, debt/finan- cial management and internal sources (e.g., interest). Federal funds are provided through annual appropriations and Federal Transit Administration grants. Most of these funds are matched by state and local funds, generally on an 80 – 20 basis.

$0.80 if the state/local governments fund $0.20. This is a typical funding arrange- ment in the transportation sector.

From FY 2005 – 2010, funding for Metro’s capital program was governed by a funding agreement between Metro and its partners, known as “Metro Matters.”
