Municipal Street Aid


Municipal Street Aid

The State Legislature appropriates annually a portion of the Delaware Transportation Trust Fund within the Capitol Improvement Program, a sum in the amount as appropriated in the annual Bond and Capitol Improvement Act, currently $5 million, to be distributed to each of the 57 municipalities. The money is to be used for the maintenance of municipal maintained streets as prescribed in Title 30, Chapter 51, Subchapter III of the Delaware Code or as amended by epilogue language.

Distribution is based on 2 factors:

  • Population certified by the U.S. Bureau of Census, Delaware Population Consortium or a prescribed enumeration (40% of distribution)
  • Mileage as verified by the Data Collection Unit (60% of distribution)
