2021 Consolidated Grant Program

Row of Traffic cone in the road. Repair scene.

The RTC is responsible for selecting projects to receive certain state, federal, and regional funds, including approximately $11 million currently available from the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP), Regional Surface Transportation Block Grant (RSTP/STBG), Covid Relief Act (CRRSAA), and federal Highway Infrastructure Program (HIP). This summer the RTC issued a call for projects, soliciting applications for these funds, with applications due on October 5, 2021. The RTC received 19 applications requesting over $26 million. Only $11.2 million is available. Listed below are projects for which the RTC received applications, links to the applications, and approved funding amounts.

Some agencies that received partial funding will reduce the scope of their projects from what was included in the application if they are unable to commit other funds to their project. The RTC’s Bicycle CommitteeE&DTAC, and ITAC reviewed projects and made recommendations for these funds at their November 2021 meetings. The RTC approved projects to receive funds at its December 2, 2021 Meeting, after considering staff and advisory committee recommendations and public input.

The board increased funding for County road resurfacing projects by $2 million above the staff and committee recommendations and directed staff to select projects to receive $189,000 that the RTC board did not designate to specific projects (noted with #).
