People, Structure, and Committees
COMPASS is funded through a combination of local membership dues, federal transportation grants, revenue from special projects for managing contracts, and other revenues, such as map sales. Membership dues typically account for approximately 20% of the overall COMPASS budget.
General member (cities, counties, highway districts) dues are calculated through a Board-approved methodology based on a jurisdiction’s population and other factors.
Special members (state government, educational institutions, etc.) each pay the same flat rate that is equal to 1% of total general membership dues.
Ex officio members do not pay dues.
