Small City Allotment Advisory Committee - SCAAC

The Committee:
The Small City Advisory Committee (SCAAC) was established by the Department of Transportation Executive Director in consultation with the League of Oregon Cities. A small city representative within each ODOT Region sits on the committee panel. The primary role of this committee is to review applications submitted under the Small City Allotment Program and make recommendations for funding to the director.

The Program:
The Small City Allotment Program allocates $5 million dollars each year to fund transportation projects for Oregon's smallest cities. Eligible cities must have a population of less then 5,000 per the most recent census. Project are selected per a competitive process with each project being reviewed on site, scored and ranked. The maximum award is $100,000 and there is no matching funds required. Only one application per city per year is allowed. Application are accepted each year between June 1st and July 31st

2022 Program Funding:
A total of 92 applications were received requesting $9,032,850 in funding. Funding was limited to $5,153,016 which allowed us to award the top 53 projects. The Advisory Committee met on October 13th to review the prioritized list of projects and provided unanimous approval. The approved list was then presented to ODOT's Director who affirmed the Committees decision.
