Commercial Avenue Interchange 2020 Local Partnership Program Application

2020 Local Partnership Program

The Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017 (Senate Bill 1) created the Local Partnership Program (LPP) as a program to reward and incentivize local or regional transportation agencies that have sought and received voter approval of taxes or that have imposed fees, which taxes or fees are dedicated solely for transportation improvements. The program is implemented by the California Transportation Commission (CTC). The CTC adopted LPP guidelines for the 2020 LPP Program on March 25, 2020 (later amended on April 29, 2020).

The Local Partnership Program receives $200 million annually from the Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation Account and each program cycle will include three years of funding. The 2020 Program (Formulaic and Competitive) will cover Fiscal Years 2020-21 through 2022-23. New cycles will be programmed every two years. The Formulaic Incentive Funding of $20 million will be set-aside each year from the Local Partnership Program leaving $180 million to be distributed 60% via Formulaic and 40% via Competitive.
