TIA Matching Fund Provision Requirements
A local match was never required for LARP grants, which were used to resurface local streets and roads, although local governments were required to ready the roads for resurfacing which often involved a great deal of preparatory work. Local governments did provide funding to match the Department’s State Aid grants, which could be used for any local transportation project. As a norm, the amount of local funds committed to these projects exceeded state funds. Typically, local governments provided the engineering, necessary rights of way, and at least half the construction funds.
