Where Is the Money Going?
Cities, counties and transit agencies will share an even split of SB 1 funding ($26 billion) to improve local streets and roads, expand the state’s growing network of pedestrian and cycle routes, and increase transit service.
Local Streets and Roads Program (LSRP): $1.5 Billion
Addresses years of unfunded road maintenance, rehabilitation and critical safety projects. Invests in "Complete Streets" projects uniquely tailored to the needs, preferences and functions of the people who live there.
State-Local Partnership Program (LPP): $200 Million Annually
- Supports the investment that local communities have made in their region through voter-approved transportation tax measures through matching funds.
- Projects will include road maintenance and rehabilitation purposes and other transportation infrastructure improvements.
- Funds are allocated by the CTC with 60% available by formula and 40% available on a competitive basis, to ensure smaller jurisdictions are able to compete.
State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) Regional Share: $82.5 Million
SB 1 funds will be used to restore the State Transportation Improvement Program (STIP). Projects funded by the STIP include future state highway, intercity rail and transit improvements throughout California, including new capacity projects.
Prior to SB 1, the California Transportation Commission (CTC) had to cut and delay $1.5 billion in projects from STIP. The funds are divided into two broad programs: the regional component, which goes to Metropolitan Planning Organizations and Regional Transportation Planning Agencies, comprising 75 percent of the funds and the interregional component, improving highways between cities, comprising the remaining 25 percent.
