BACKGROUND
The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has requested cities and counties submit applications for Fiscal Year 2019 and Fiscal Year 2020 Revenue Sharing Program Funds.  VDOT recently changed the program to a biennial application cycle meaning that localities will apply for two application cycles every two years starting this year.  The current estimated total program funding amount is $100 million per year and the maximum annual award limit to any locality is $5 million. The Revenue Sharing funds must be matched with local Capital Improvement funds.  Applications can be submitted for eligible projects as defined by the VDOT Revenue Sharing Guidelines.  A Resolution from City Council is required to be submitted with each application.
RECOMMENDATION
It is recommended that City Council approve the accompanying Resolutions requesting the Virginia Department of Transportation to allocate Fiscal Year 2019 and Fiscal Year 2020 Revenue Sharing Program funds for various street improvement projects.
