Senate Bill (SB) 1 Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017

Local Partnership Program (LPP) - Competitive

The Local Partnership Competitive Program is funded $100 million annually from the Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation Account. The Commission established the initial program cycle as a three-year $300 million (Fiscal Years 2017-18 through 2019-20) program, with future program cycles every two years. Jurisdictions with voter approved taxes, tolls, and fees, or with imposed fees, are eligible for the program if the taxes, tolls, or fees are dedicated solely to transportation.

Overall Program Background

The Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017 (Senate Bill 1) created the Local Partnership Program, which is modeled closely after the Proposition 1B State Local Partnership Program. The purpose of this program is to provide local and regional transportation agencies that have passed sales tax measures, developer fees, or other imposed transportation fees with a continuous appropriation of $200 million annually from the Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation Account to fund road maintenance and rehabilitation, sound walls, and other transportation improvement projects. Consistent with the intent behind Senate Bill 1, the Commission intends this program to balance the need to direct increased revenue to the state’s highest transportation needs while fairly distributing the economic impact of increased funding.

The Local Partnership Program funds are distributed through a 50% statewide competitive component and a 50% formula component.

Guideline development for Cycle 2 is expected to begin in 2019. More information will be posted here at that time.
