Transportation Funding Programs


The ODOT Planning Section helps lead and coordinate several statewide Transportation Funding Programs that are further described on this page. These funding opportunities are all based upon comprehensive multimodal planning and project implementation. In addition, ODOT has other state and federal funding programs available for project planning, design, right of way, and construction activities.


Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP)

 2015-2018 STIP Process Approved

The STIP Enhance project application is now available for use. Please see the STIP Guidance for an introduction to the new STIP process for 2015-2018, a timeline for the process, the instructions for completing and submitting the application, and the application.

2012-2015 STIP

The Statewide Transportation Improvement Program, known as the STIP, is Oregon's four year transportation capital improvement program. It is the document that identifies the funding for, and scheduling of, transportation projects and programs. It includes projects on the federal, state, city, and county transportation systems, multimodal projects (highway, passenger rail, freight, public transit, bicycle and pedestrian), and projects in the National Parks, National Forests, and Indian tribal lands.


Transportation Planning Section develops STIP policy and guidance on how to select projects or other investments in the transportation system and work with stakeholders to make selections. Examples include developing the STIP criteria that describes how to approach project selection and how to use the criteria approved by the OTC to select projects. For more information on these topics see the links below.



 ConnectOregon is a lottery bond based initiative to invest in air, rail, marine, transit, and bicycle/pedestrian infrastructure to ensure Oregon’s transportation system is strong, diverse, and efficient.

ConnectOregon projects are eligible for up to 80% of project costs for grants and 100% for loans. A minimum 20% cash match is required from the recipient for all grant funded projects. Projects eligible for funding from state fuel tax revenues (section 3a, Article IX of the Oregon Constitution, the Highway Trust Fund), are not eligible for ConnectOregon funding. If a highway or public road element is essential to the complete functioning of the proposed project, applicants are encouraged to work with their ODOT region, city, or county to identify the necessary funding sources.


Transportation and Growth Management (TGM)

TGM Logo Oregon's Transportation and Growth Management Program supports community efforts to expand transportation choices for people. By linking land use and transportation planning, TGM works in partnership with local governments to create vibrant, livable places in which people can walk, bike, take transit or drive where they want to go.
