Not every possible funding source is contained in the Guide, but in many cases, the sources identified can lead to other prospects. In addition to funding options, the Guide covers financing mechanisms, which consist primarily of borrowing and other methods to advance the construction of necessary infrastructure that might otherwise have to await accumulation of funds over many years. The Guide is organized into a series of fact sheets on individual funding options and financing mechanisms. The fact sheets provide a menu of funding sources for transportation improvements. This pamphlet, Transportation Funding Options for Arizona Counties (June 2010), is a supplement to the Guide. The pamphlet provides handy look-up tables by mode or project type. We hope this will be a useful resource for Arizona Counties. Both the Guide and the Pamphlet were produced for MCDOT with the assistance of AECOM.
