The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) is committed to advancing projects that enhance
safety, renew the aging infrastructure and the State's economy and support new transportation
opportunities. The Transportation Trust Fund (TTF) provides the opportunity for State assistance to
local governments for the funding of road, bridge and other transportation projects. Annually, the
TTF provides $175 million in State Aid to municipalities and counties for local transportation
improvements. For FY 2011, the Municipal Aid funding is $78.75 million for municipalities, $78.75 million
for counties, and $17.5 million Local Aid Infrastructure Fund.
In addition, several programs which provide funding to counties and municipalities are funded with
federal monies available through the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA 21) legislation.
