Allocation to District
Allocations for the District Discretionary Programs are approved by the commission with each district receiving an allocation based on:
- 70% - vehicle miles traveled both on and off the state highway system
- 30% - registered vehicles.
Each district will receive a minimum allocation of $2,000,000 (as required by Rider 41 to TxDOT’s apportionments, Article 7 of House Bill 1, passed by the 75th Texas Legislature).
The district discretionary programs are managed as bank balance programs with eligible projects developed by the districts within their allocations. District Discretionary Programs are usually one-year programs with the program funds available for use within four years.
Additional programming authority has also been allocated to the districts for the development of plans, specifications, estimates, and right-of-way purchase. Funding of these projects can be made through their annual District Discretionary Program, other district bank balance programs, or the Strategic Priority Program.Anchor: #i1023289
Match for preliminary engineering, construction, and right-of-way purchase/utility adjustments will be in accordance with TxDOT's Policy for Matching Funds - Participation Ratios.
