Local Partnership Program - MnDOT District 6

Scoring criteria for the local partnership program in district 6. Out of 35 possible points, 10 points are based on the preservation of existing infrastructure, 8 points are based on general considerations, 7 points are based on safety, 5 points are based on mobility, and 5 points are based on community development.

The Local Partnership Program (formerly known as Municipal Agreements or Cooperative Agreements) funds locally identified improvements to state highways, particularly locations where the local transportation network intersects with the state system.

Within each district, cities and counties apply for funding.

MnDOT’s State Aid Division is currently revising the project selection criteria for the Local Partnership Program.
