A new handbook will help local governments navigate state and federal funding opportunities to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from transportation.

The Every Mile Counts Funding Handbook for Local Governments provides information about the various resources available, including funding amounts, which federal or state agency is in charge, when to apply, who to talk to, and where to learn more.

Read the funding handbook PDF online.
More than $369 billion in federal funds are available, thanks to recent historic investments from Congress to help the country transition to clean energy and tackle climate change. Many state funding opportunities are available, too.

The handbook was published by the Every Mile Counts partnership of state agencies, which includes the Oregon Departments of Environmental Quality, Land Conservation and Development, Transportation, and Energy.

Transportation makes up about 35% of greenhouse gas emissions in Oregon. State agencies are working to reduce emissions from transportation over the next several decades; by 2050, emissions will be 60% lower than they were in 1990. Learn how at the Oregon transportation emissions website.

For more information about the handbook, contact:

Cody Meyer, Land Use and Transportation Planner, DLCD, 971-239-9475.
