NJTTF Funding for Mercer County, 2014-2015
New Jersey’s Transportation Trust Fund provides over $160 million in grants to counties and municipalities for local infrastructure projects. That’s why the NJ State League of Municipalities, representing municipalities around the state, said, “The replenishment of the Transportation Trust Fund (TTF) remains a top priority for the League…The TTF has been a major source of funding for local transportation projects for almost thirty years.” [Source]
Without TTF funds, municipalities would be forced to either cancel/postpone local infrastructure projects or look for alternative means of funding, including property taxes.
