Funding transportation projects
Cherriots administers three grants for transportation projects in Marion and Polk Counties. Funding comes from three different sources: the Statewide Transportation Improvement Fund, the State Special Transportation Fund (STF), and Federal Section 5310 funds passed through the Oregon Department of Transportation (5310 (ODOT)). Cherriots is the STF Agency for Marion and Polk Counties, and as such, the District screens the projects that go to ODOT and FTA for final approval. The application processes are documented in the Coordinated Public Transit – Human Services Transportation Plan (The Coordinated Plan), dated September 2019. Details such as eligible applicants, eligible projects, and project selection criteria can be found in the application instructions when they become available.
