What guidelines do states have for spending the funding?
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Federal Transit Administration have issued
guidance to assist state and local agencies in preparing for implementation of the stimulus bill. The
guidance includes Q&As and actions that can be taken to expedite economic recovery projects.

The Federal Highway Administration must provide an official allocation for each state no later than March 7, 2009. Preliminary estimate of funding for each state including the portion earmarked for Enhancements:
