Please contact your District or view your District webpage to determine if there are any district specific requirements or supplements to this Application. Some districts also have a pre-application process. Submit applications according to your specific district’s schedule. The application is only available as an Adobe form to complete as a template, but ultimately all applications will need to be entered into the new OPWC Salesforce based portal, WorksWise.

Check with your district to see if they require a CIR as part of the project application. Our most recent information indicates CIRs are only required by Districts 12, 17 and 19*. [*D-19 does not require the Summary Form and only requires the CIR for those projects that seek outside funding or specifically named, e.g. Main & Maple Turn lanes, 1st St Storm Sewer, etc. Paving programs or other recurring annual projects are excluded.]
