Statewide Transportation Improvement Fund (STIF)
With the passage of House Bill 2017, Keep Oregon Moving, the state legislature has committed to both the improvement and enhancement of transportation services through the Statewide Transportation Improvement Fund (“STIF”). For Central Oregon, this means the opportunity to enhance public transportation services to access jobs and community services, improve mobility, and relieve congestion.
Crook, Jefferson, and Deschutes Counties and the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs recently delegated STIF administrative activities to Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council (COIC) and are creating advisory committees to help shape the future of public transportation. The goal of STIF advisory committees is to prioritize projects and coordinate both local and regional focused transit projects and services. STIF Advisory committees will meet regularly throughout the year with specific dates and times to be determined. The application process for Crook, Jefferson, and Deschutes county has ended. Applications for the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs are currently being accepted and are due on March 1, 2019 at 5 pm.
