The Small City Allotment Program allocates $5 million dollars each year to fund transportation projects for Oregon’s smallest cities. Eligible cities must be incorporated and have populations of 5,000 or fewer per the most recent census. Funding may only be used upon streets that are inadequate for the capacity they serve or are in a condition detrimental to safety. Projects that best meet the criterion will be selected per a competitive process.
2023 Project Solicitation:
- The maximum award amount has been increased to $250,000.
- Applications will be accepted June 1st through July 31st.
- Project evaluations will be conducted between August 1st and September 30th.
- Awards will be announced mid to late October.
Cities must have all previously awarded Small City Allotment projects completed prior to August 1, 2023 to be considered for another award.
Funds will be available after January 1, 2024 with an executed agreement. Cities may request up to 50% of the award amount as an advance, remaining expenses will be reimbursed at project completion.
