Does the region (NP&EDC) or town manage Chapter 90 funds?

Chapter 90 funds are allocated by the state directly to municipalities based on a funding formula. These funds support roadway improvements and typically comprise a large portion of municipalities’ basic maintenance budgets. The Town of Nantucket (rather than the region) manages these funds.
