Local Agency Program (LAP)
LAP Community of Practice
Communication, coordination and cooperation are the keys to successfully implementing any funding program. Clarity of FHWA’s requirements for LPA administered Federal-aid projects is critical. To aid in this partnering effort and collaboration goal, a Stakeholder Committee composed of The FDOT Office of Local Programs along with the Federal Highway Administration, State and Local Agency stakeholders have worked together to create this advisory group. Its purpose is to ensure effective communication among members, training is provided and that development and delivery processes are reviewed and refined.
How does the Group work? We talk. We discuss. We listen. We take good ideas, make them better through our collective experience and act upon them. We are not silos administering federal funding to improve Florida’s local roads – we are a team. The Group embodies that spirit. We focus on what is slowing down the federal-aid process in Florida and systematically find workable solutions – or better understand why a process needs to occur the way it does. The important part is all of the members know they can discuss their concerns and have them addressed. They know their voices have been and will be heard. They have a seat at the table.
How can I learn more about LAP CoP? Through the information on this website. That is why we are sharing it with you. We want everyone, not just those who are members of the Group, to have access to what the Group is about, who is representing each partner in the process, when the Group is meeting, what the Group is working on and results the Group has achieved. We invite you to review the information on each page of this website. If you have questions, you can contact the FDOT Office of Local Programs.
