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

Local Partnership Program (LPP) - Formulaic

The Local Partnership Formulaic Program receives $100 million annually from the Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation Account. The Commission established the initial program cycle as a two-year $200 million (Fiscal Years 2017-18 and 2018-19) program, with future program cycles annually.

Eligibility: Jurisdictions with voter approved taxes, tolls, and fees dedicated solely to transportation.

Share Distribution: The Commission will adopt the funding share for each eligible taxing authority by establishing northern and southern California shares and by attributing the proportional share of revenues from voter approved taxes, tolls, and fees and distributing in proportion based on the county’s population. Detailed information can be found in the Local Partnership Program Guidelines.

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 3 (FY 2020-2021) is expected to begin in 2019. More information will be posted here at that time.
