Based on data up to 12-24-2012

Note: Under Pollutants - PM2.5 (2006) refers to PM2.5 24 Hr 2006 standard; PM2.5 (1997) refers to PM2.5 1997 annual standard; Ozone refers to the Ozone 8 Hr 2008 standard

Nonattainment or Maintenance Area Pollutants STATE MPO or Portion of MPO Use a Single Budget Area-Wide, or Sub-Area Budgets? Lead on Travel Demand and Emissions Modeling
Cleveland-Akron-Lorain PM2.5 (2006 std) Ohio Akron Metropolitan Area Transportation Study A single budget used in the whole area MPOs take the lead on both travel demand and emissions modeling.
Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency
Harrisburg-Lebanon-Carlisle-York, PA PM2.5 (2006 std) Pennsylvania Harrisburg Area Transportation Study No budgets currently in the SIP. "No greater than baseline year" comparison analysis for each sub-area. The State DOT takes the lead on both travel demand and emissions modeling.
Lebanon County MPO
Johnstown PM2.5 (2006 std) Pennsylvania Cambria County MPO Attainment SIPs with budgets for the 1997 and 2006 PM2.5 standards have not yet been submitted to EPA by the state. Once SIPs are submitted and approved the region expects to have separate sub-area budgets for each MPO. "No greater than baseline year" comparison analysis for each sub-area is used - emissions are developed seperately for each MPO and then added together for entire nonatainment area. Close interagency coordination on planning assumptions and analysis years. Southwestern Pennsylvania Commission takes the lead on travel modeling and emissions modeling for the portion of the nonattainment area within its planning area.
