Fiscal Year 2023 Chapter 90 apportionment
Fiscal Year 2023 apportionments are not considered final or available for use until funding is officially approved by Legislators and the Governor. Funding levels for the Chapter 90 Program are established by Massachusetts Legislature and approved by the Governor on an annual basis. Based on the amount legislatively approved, each of the Commonwealth’s 351 municipalities are allocated a portion of overall Chapter 90 Program dollars each state fiscal year, which runs July 1 through June 30.
Per the legislatively established formula, the amount of funding a municipality receives is based on local road mileage (58.33%), population (20.83%), and employment (20.83%). Local road mileage is gathered from MassDOT’s Road Inventory File. Population data is collected using decennial census data from United States Census Bureau. Employment figures are provided by the Massachusetts Department of Unemployment Assistance.
