Resources for Local Communities

There are a number of resources that local communities can use as they identify their communities' needs and ways to address those needs, search for funding for projects, or navigate the grant and project development process.

Frequently Asked Questions


  • Dues
    There are no dues required to join the Mid-Region RTPO.
  • Matching Funds for Projects
    A jurisdiction needs to provide matching funds for transportation projects (if required by the program) if that jurisdiction applies for and receives federal funds.
  • Land Use/Zoning
    The Mid-Region RTPO does not have authority over land use, zoning, or comprehensive plans. The Mid-Region RTPO and MRCOG assist local jurisdictions in these activities upon request. A cost arrangement may be required depending on the extent of the assistance.
  • MRRTPO, MRMPO and MRCOG - what's the difference?
    The Mid-Region Council of Governments (MRCOG) is an organization with several different departments and is governed by the MRCOG Board of Directors. The NM Department of Transportation contracts with MRCOG to provide transportation planning services to the non-metropolitan portion of the MRCOG region. This is the Mid-Region Rural Transportation Planning Organization, or RTPO. MRCOG is the federally designated metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for the Albuquerque Metropolitan Planning Area, so the Mid-Region MPO is another department of MRCOG, as is the Rio Metro Regional Transit District (RMRTD), which has a separate board, the RMRTD Board of Directors.
