The C-Fund Program is a long-established partnership between the South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) and the forty-six counties in the state. It funds improvements of state roads, county roads, city streets, and other local transportation projects.
Funding is derived from gasoline user fee of 3.66 cents per gallon. From the total amount of C-Funds collected statewide, funding is apportioned to York County based on these criteria:
one-third based on the ratio of land area in York County compared to the land area in the state
one-third based on the ratio of York County population (as determined by the latest 10-year federal census) compared to the state’s population
one-third based on the ratio of rural road mileage in York County compared to total rural mileage in the state
York County Critical Needs Program
The Critical Needs Program was established by the County Council to address the improvement and preservation of county-maintained, paved roads. It is funded through the General Fund.
