Nonattainment Area Air Pollution Mitigation Enterprise

The Enterprise mitigates the environmental and health impacts of increased air pollution from motor vehicle emissions in nonattainment areas.

About the Nonattainment Area Air Pollution Mitigation Enterprise

This Enterprise was created within the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) to support mitigation of the environmental and health impacts of increased air pollution from motor vehicle emissions in nonattainment areas that results from the rapid and continuing growth in retail deliveries made by motor vehicles and in prearranged rides provided by transportation network companies.

Enterprise funding is for eligible projects that reduce traffic, including demand management projects that encourage alternatives to driving alone or that directly reduce air pollution, such as retrofitting of construction equipment, construction of roadside vegetation barriers, and planting trees along (CRS 43-4-1303).


Enterprise 10-Year Plan

As required within statute, the Enterprise’s 10-Year plan outlines the business purpose of the enterprise and establishes the overall direction for the use of these funds through state fiscal year 2031-32. This plan was designed to be flexible to changes in fee collection and market conditions, community needs, and other issues that could affect the business purpose of the Enterprise.

NAAPME Plan Cover

The plan was developed with direction from the Enterprise’s Board of Directors and input from local government and the public through outreach efforts conducted by enterprise staff throughout the spring of 2022.

In addition to outlining the overall direction of the enterprise over the next ten years, this plan explains what areas of the state are in nonattainment status, the development of a preliminary spending plan for the next ten years, and outlines potential requirements for projects funded by the enterprise. Further refinements of the enterprise’s 10-year plan will continue throughout its life, at the discretion of the enterprise’s Board of Directors.
