The Small City Program provides federal funds to small cities with populations from 5,000 to 24,999 that are NOT located within Metropolitan Planning Organizations’ boundaries. This program may be used by the incorporated localities for any road, safety or signal project on the Federal-aid system. ODOT will provide up to 80% of eligible costs for construction only. Historically, the funding amount for this program has been approximately $8 million annually and is anticipated to increase to $10 million for the 2016 state fiscal year.
Currently, there are 54 small cities that meet this program’s criteria.
