Round 2

The modal scoring teams have completed their reviews and scoring of the Round 2 Flexible Fund applications.  Overall, the program received 105 applications requesting over $89 million.  This is good in that it demonstrates a strong need for project funding, unfortunately it also means that the competition for the funds is very high.
Based upon the modal scoring teams average scores, we have developed the proposed list of projects that will be forwarded to the cross modal review and scoring process.  This list was developed by using average scores while ensuring a full, complete and diverse list of projects are forwarded to the next stage of the scoring process. 
The attached document contains the list of projects forwarded to the next stage of the scoring process.  Again, this was a very competitive process and we do have limited funds to award during this round of the program.

The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) is pleased to announce the availability of $21 million in federal funding for Non-Highway Transportation projects through the Flexible Funds Program.

The Flexible Funds Program funds Bicycle, Pedestrian, Transit and Transportation Demand Management (TDM) projects, plans, programs and services through a competitive process.

This year's application cycle begins September 1st and are due on or before October 20, 2011. Funding decisions by the Oregon Transportation Commission (OTC) are anticipated early next year.
