DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
As authorized by Section 182.6(g) of the Streets and Highway Code, EDCTC has entered into Agreement X16-6157(058) with the State of California, through the Department of Transportation (Caltrans), to assign a defined portion of its annual RSTP apportionment to Caltrans in exchange for FY 2015/16 nonfederal State Highway Account funds. EDCTC is authorized to use these exchange funds to assist local agencies in promoting projects which otherwise qualify for RSTP funds. EDCTC is required to execute formal written agreements between EDCTC and RSTP Exchange Recipients and provide oversight of the program funds. The EDCTC received the FY 2015/16 RSTP Exchange Funds on June 9, 2016, which will be paid to the County per the formula-based distribution policy adopted by EDCTC on February 3, 2011, after the execution of this Agreement. The expiration date of the funds is five (5) years from the date funds are allocated by EDCTC.
