An overview of TIB's small city funding programs.
Overview
TIB provides funding for cities and towns with a population less than 5,000 through four grant programs:

  • Small City Arterial Program (SCAP)
  • Small City Sidewalk Program (SCSP)
  • Small City Preservation Program (SCPP)
  • Relight Washington Program (LED)

  • These programs fund projects with the intent of reconstructing or maintaining the transportation infrastructure. Funding is distributed regionally, with projects competing only in their own region.

    The Transportation Improvement Board understands that the state's smallest communities do not have the financial ability to fund large portions of transportation improvements. TIB's programs for small cities have been developed to require little or no local match. Match requirements are determined by population.

    TIB's small city funding is awarded annually through a competitive process. Applications are reviewed by TIB staff and projects are rated based on criteria developed by the Board.

    Once selected, TIB staff provides grant oversight, assists with consultant selection, and acts as facilitators to bring projects to completion.
