What does it mean to be a self-help county?
- Self-Help Counties create and maintain jobs for transportation infrastructure, operations and maintenance.
- Self-Help offers a reliable and stable funding stream that far outstrips state and federal funding on an annual basis.
- The public has direct access to local decision-makers, and public meetings are held each month throughout the state with public opportunities to participate in every self-help county.
- Expenditure plans explicitly detail how funds will be spent, allowing the public to fully understand where their local transportation dollars go.
