TxDOT – County Transportation Infrastructure Fund Program Update

Dear SD 20 County Officials,

Yesterday, the Texas Transportation Commission approved the program call for the County Transportation Infrastructure Fund (CTIF). This past session, I supported the appropriation of $250 million for the CTIF Program, $125 million in Senate Bill 500 from the Economic Stabilization Fund, and $125 million in House Bill 1, the General Appropriations Act. This funding will enable counties in areas affected by energy-sector activities to apply for and obtain grants through TxDOT to repair or improve county roads.

TxDOT will begin notifying all counties, by certified letter to the county judge, of the application process and timeframe for submitting an application to TxDOT for the 2020 program call. The estimated allocations based on the formula in statute for counties in my district include:

  • Brooks – $275,541
  • Hidalgo – $450,684
  • Jim Wells – $209,769
  • Nueces – $285,792

TxDOT will begin accepting electronically submitted applications on Monday, April 27, 2020. The application period will end Wednesday, May 27, 2020. Detailed information on the program is available here. Please do not hesitate to contact me or my office if you have any questions regarding this program.
