Project Financial Information

STP Federal amount: 6962  (Thousands of $)

STP Year requested: 2021
Source of Local Match: County-wide sales tax revenue will be used for federal match. 80% maximum is requested, however a lesser percentage could be utilized to accommodate the MARC process.
Explain: A 20 year extension of a one-cent sales tax for capital improvements was passed by the Leavenworth County voters in February of 015. This sales tax generates approximately $3M annually for utilization on this and other Leavenworth County transportation projects.
