County Forest Road Aids help defray county costs for the improvement and maintenance of public roads within county forests.
County Forest Road Aid of $351 per mile of qualifying road is paid each year on March 10. The aid is prorated if the amount appropriated in the state budget is not sufficient to support the $351 per mile payment.
To qualify, roads must meet minimum design standards of a 16-foot surface width and a 20-foot roadway width, be located within county forests, must be open and used for travel, and cannot be town roads or county or state trunk highways.
The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) is offering grants to support the development of new and existing cooperatives in Wisconsin, with a goal of fostering the success of current and future cooperatives by supporting planning and exploratory research in advance of making a large investment.

Established in 1991, the Local Roads Improvement Program (LRIP) assists local governments in improving seriously deteriorating county highways, town roads, and city and village streets. LRIP is a reimbursement program which pays up to 50% of total eligible costs, with local governments providing the balance.
