The Regional Flexible Funds program, which includes money from three federal programs, is allocated every two to three years. During the current three-year cycle, the program has about $94.6 million available for projects ranging from regional trails to major road improvements.
Metro, counties and cities across the Portland metropolitan area will select a few projects to fund from among 29 locally proposed projects (including six from Clackamas County). The public is encouraged to review the proposed projects (www.oregonmetro.gov/rffa), and comment on which ones meet the needs of their community and how the projects could be improved. Project descriptions are available in English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Chinese and Russian.
The six projects in Clackamas County are listed below. Click on each project for more information.
