Funding is intended for projects to build or improve streets, bridges, roads in industrial areas, highways in remote areas, drainage works, and various other eligible transportation projects. Government agencies in Canadian, Cleveland, Logan, and Oklahoma Counties are eligible.

The Oklahoma Legislature has appropriated funding for small, rural communities with populations under 7,000 called the Rural Economic Action Plan (REAP). According to state legislation, the funds related to REAP projects are distributed through the 11 councils of government in the state, including ACOG.

REAP grants may include improvements in rural water quality, rural solid waste disposal or treatment, rural sanitary sewer construction or upgrades, provision of rural health care services (including emergency medical care), telecommunications improvements, projects that increase employment levels, and municipal energy distribution system improvements.

80 percent of REAP funds must be spent for projects appearing in these six categories listed below:

  1. Rural water quality projects, including acquisition, treatment, distribution, and recovery of water for consumption by humans or animals or both
  2. Rural solid waste disposal, treatment or similar projects
  3. Rural sanitary sewer construction or improvement projects
  4. Rural road or street construction or improvement projects
  5. Provision of rural fire protection services and public safety services
