Federal Fund Exchange Training What is the Federal Fund Exchange? This is a voluntary program in which a Local Public Agency can trade its federal obligation authority with KDOT

or another local agency in exchange for state funds. State funds are paid on a reimbursement basis as the LPA incurs costs. What Are the Benefits of the Fund Exchange?

Eliminates costly and time-consuming requirements of federal-aid projects. Reduced environmental documentation Plans development to meet local needs Inspection to meet local needs Avoid many restrictive federal provisions

Much wider range of scopes allowed Transportation Project Road construction, reconstruction, rehabilitation Pavement preservation (overlay, mill/overlay, chip/seal, pvt. patching, crack sealing) Purchase of aggregate used exclusively on a

specific section of road Safety improvement (signing, pvt. marking, roadside obstacles, intersection, etc.) Transportation Project Bridge construction/replacement Bridge rehabilitation, repair Bridge removal

Low-water crossing Transportation Project Erosion protection in ditches or around drainage structures. Const. of sidewalks, ADA ramps, pedestrian signals. Construction of trails.

Curb & Gutter repair or replacement. Storm sewer repairs. Allowable Use of State Funds All phases of project are eligible. LPA determines procedures, criteria and standards. Must meet applicable laws, regulations, accepted

engineering practices. Funds must be requested prior to September 15 of Federal Fiscal Year they were made available. Current Fed.-Aid Process Federal funds are made available to KDOT

through FHWA. FHWA KDOT shares a portion of federal funds with cities and counties.

KDOT City/County LPA develops project. KDOT lets/administers project with federal/local funds

How the Fund Exchange Works Federal funds are made available to KDOT through FHWA. FHWA KDOT shares a portion of

federal funds with cities and counties. KDOT KDOT agrees to provide LPA $0.75 state funds per $1.00 fed. In 2018 with rate to be

determined annually by the Secretary of Transportation City/County LPA requests KDOT exchange funds.

How the Fund Exchange Works KDOT reimburses LPA up to maximum amount of total exchange. KDOT City/County

LPA submits request for reimbursement to KDOT along with appropriate documentation of expenditure. LPA lets/administers project(s) themselves and pays contractor/suppliers. Fed. Funds Available for Exchange

5-Year Plan funds (STP Limitation) Counties: $31.1 million (FFY 2018) Cities: $11.6 million (FFY 2018) Minus Federal-Aid Local Bridge Program. Approx. $8 million annually. Minus Local Bridge Inspection Compliance Effort.

Approx. $5 million annually. Through 2022. Implementation Plan Beginning Fall 2010 Federal Fiscal Year 2011. All counties Cities over 5,000 not in metro area.

5-Year Plan Letter No longer 5-year plan update Letter will: Tell you how many fed $ available for year Give you option of either programming fed-aid project or requesting exchange. Provide deadline for informing us of decision.
