Section 3: Effect of Approved Values on Authorized Right of Way FundsAnchor: #i999445
To ensure continuous and adequate right of way fund authorization, project funds will be encumbered by the State's share of each value at the time the project is approved. The State, after release of approved values and establishment of the eligible reimbursement date, is obligated to reimburse the local government whenever a proper reimbursement request is presented. Because of this, do not make a commitment for expenditures in excess of the authorized funds. Encumbrance of authorized funds keeps them in line with State obligations incurred through the approval of values.
