Significant Changes Coming to Rural Task Force Program

Posted on November 11, 2015 by Dene Westbrook

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT), in conjunction with the Rural Task Force (RTF) Oversight Board, is pleased to announce it has achieved significant milestones in improving the RTF Program in a way that fulfills federal oversight rules and better meets the needs of rural programs.

In early 2016, the RTF Oversight Board will begin rolling out materials and guidance documents to bring more transparency and equity to the way federal funds flow through Michigan’s Rural Task Forces and Regional Planning agencies.

The Oversight Board has come to a consensus on a better path forward to improve how local federal obligation dollars are distributed, allocated, and obligated in the RTF Process.
