Statewide Transportation Improvement Fund

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 delegated STIF administrative activities to Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council (COIC). COIC is tasked with managing the advisory committees and facilitating meetings throughout the year. The main goal of STIF advisory committees is for members to review and prioritize transit projects, programs, and services. STIF advisory committees meet at least two times throughout the year with specific dates and times referenced in the sections below. These meetings are open to the public and held either virtually or in hybrid setting.

The STIF and Special Transportation Fund (STF) programs were consolidated in January 2022 to increase efficiency and funding reliability for public transportation providers throughout Oregon. STIF funding may be used to finance investments and improvements in public transportation services, except for light rail capital expenses. STIF may be used for public transportation purposes that support the effective planning, deployment, operation, and administration of public transportation services and programs. STIF Formula Funds are not intended to supplant local funding sources to maintain existing services.
