Economic Distress in Relation to the Estimated Economic Performance
If the project is located within an distressed area TRAC will award additional points for projects that are estimated to create jobs and increase GSP. Project receiving zero points under the "Consider Factors of Economic Distress Will not be eligible for the additional points.
Under this category point will be awarded utilizing the following formula:
Points+ (Total Jobs Created Points + Gross State Product Points + Distress Points) X 0.5
Since both Jobs Created and Gross State Product are values generated by the ODOT Statewide Transportation Model, project applicants will not be able to accurately estimate their score in this section.
