DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

As authorized by Section 182.6(g) of the Streets and Highway Code, El Dorado County Transportation Commission (EDCTC) has entered into Agreement X18-6157(064) with the State of California, through the Department of Transportation (Caltrans), to assign a defined portion of its annual Surface Transportation Block Grant Program (STBGP) apportionment to Caltrans in exchange for FY 2017/18 nonfederal State Highway Account funds.  EDCTC is authorized to use these exchange funds to assist local agencies in promoting projects which otherwise qualify for STBGP funds.  EDCTC is required to execute formal written agreements between EDCTC and STBGP Exchange Recipients and provide oversight of the program funds.  The EDCTC received the FY 2017/18 STBGP Exchange Funds on June 14, 2018, 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.
