The Program
The Small City Allotment program is an annual allocation of state funds for local transportation projects. Through an agreement between the League of Oregon Cities and ODOT. ODOT sets aside $5M each year (half from city gas tax revenue and half from the State Highway Fund) for incorporated cities with populations of 5,000 or less. Statute (ORS 366.805) dictates that these funds may be used only upon streets that are inadequate for the capacity they serve or are in a condition detrimental to safety. Funds are distributed per a competitive process with cities competing against other cities within the same region. Each project is evaluated, scored and ranked and those that best meet the program criteria will be awarded to the degree funding allows. Funding is limited to $250,000 per project.
