Local Assistance Division

VDOT administers this program, in cooperation with participating localities, under the authority of Section 33.2-357 of the Code of Virginia.

The Revenue Sharing Program provides additional funding for use by a county, city, or town to construct or improve the highway systems within such locality, with statutory limitations on the amount of state funds authorized per locality.

Funds can also be requested for eligible additions in certain counties of the commonwealth.

Locality funds are matched with state funds for qualifying projects.  

An annual allocation of funds for this program is designated by the CTB.

Application for program funding must be made online by accessing the CTB's Smart Portal, where localities may make requests for VDOT funding programs electronically.  

Additional supporting documentation, including a resolution in support of the application for the Revenue Sharing funding by the locality’s governing body, as outlined in the Revenue Sharing guidelines, will be required.

Towns not maintaining their own streets must have their requests included in their county's application.

Project administration may be done by VDOT or by the locality under an agreement with the Department.

Local Government Revenue Sharing Applicant Workshop Webinar 

Revenue Sharing Applicant Workshop for Local Governments on Thursday, April 29, 2021 from 10am-noon. The webinar will review program eligibility and the application process.

The Revenue Sharing program provides for a dollar-for-dollar match to primary, secondary or urban improvement, reconstruction, construction or maintenance projects being funded by counties, cities or towns. Fiscal Year’s 23/24 application has enhancements that will improve the application process for both locality and VDOT users. We will also discuss the availability of funds, project schedules and present an overview with helpful hints of the Smart Portal application process.

The Applicant Workshop is strongly recommended for localities that are interested in applying for Revenue Sharing funding.
