Local Government Road Fund The purpose of the Local Government Road Fund Program (LGRF) is to provide funds to local governments for projects where local Entities take the lead in developing and contracting construction and maintenance projects. The fund may be used for project development, construction, reconstruction, improvement, maintenance or repair of public highways, streets and public school parking lots, acquisition of right-of-way, and in place material for construction or improvement.
Common funding types are County Arterial Program, Cooperative Program, and School Bus Route Program (for counties only.) The County Arterial Program is a road mileage category based on the number of miles maintained by the County, per State statute. The Cooperative Program is the most common funding type, and is available to counties, municipalities, school districts, universities and tribal entities. The School Bus Route Program is available to counties to apply for funds used for acquiring rights-of-way and constructing, maintaining, repairing, improving and paving school bus routes.
Contact Debbie Hudson, District One Offices, at 575-544-6536 for the LGRF application requirements.
The Municipal Arterial Program (MAP) provides funding for municipalities only. The main purpose of funding is to develop routes that assist in the distribution of state highway system traffic.
