The amount of a municipality's allocation is based on its population and miles of roads on their approved Liquid Fuels Inventory. To be placed on the system a road must have minimum of 33' right-of-way in a township and 16' in a borough. The "cartway" (drivable surface) must be a minimum width of 16', and the road must be a minimum of 250' in length. If the road is a dead end, it must have cul de sac (turnaround) at the end with a minimum 40' radius.
To continue to receive Liquid Fuels funds, a road must be maintained in such a condition that it can be driven safely at 15 mph.
