STIFAC Application

 

The Cherriots Board of Directors formed the Statewide Transportation Improvement Fund Advisory Committee (“STIFAC”) pursuant to Oregon law for the purpose of advising and assisting the District in carrying out the purposes of the Statewide Transportation Improvement Fund (“STIF”). The STIF was created with the passage of House Bill 2017 in the 2017 Legislative Session.

The STIFAC will prioritize and recommend projects that will go to the Board of Directors for approval. The District is the designated Qualified Entity for STIF monies received for public transportation service providers (PTSP) in the Marion and Polk counties area. The PTSPs include Cherriots Local, Cherriots Regional, Woodburn Transit, and Silverton’s Silver Trolley. The STIFAC may also advise the District regarding opportunities to coordinate STIF-funded projects with other local or regional transportation programs and services to improve transportation service delivery and reduce gaps in service.

The STIFAC is currently meeting virtually due to the pandemic. View meeting agendas on the Public Meetings and Notices page for information on how to attend. To contact members of the committee, email STIFAC@cherriots.org.
