Connecting Highway Aids

Connecting Highway Aids (CHA) assist municipalities with costs associated with increased traffic and maintenance on roads that connect segments of the state highway system.

One hundred sixteen (116) municipalities receive quarterly payments on a per lane mile basis, with rates varying according to population and appropriations set in the state budget. Cities, villages and towns receive four equal payments annually on the first Monday of January, April, July, and October.


Eligible applicants include municipalities with marked routes on the State Trunk Highway system over the streets and highways within their jurisdiction which are designated as connecting highways.
