The Small City Allotment Advisory Committee
(SCAAC) was established by ODOT's Executive Director of Transportation in consultation with the League of Oregon Cities. The advisory committee is comprised of a representative from each of ODOT's five regions. Committee members must be affiliated with an eligible city within the region they represent. The committee will be responsible for sharing opinions and perspectives in regards to establishing project selection criteria and program policy as well as approving funding for applications submitted under the Small City Allotment 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.
The next Small City Allotment Advisory Committee meeting is scheduled for October 6th, 9:00 – 10:30 a.m. This will be a virtual meeting via MS TEAMS:
