Welcome

Welcome to the Florida Department of Transportation's Local Programs Webpage. Local Programs are designed to provide transportation resources authorized for construction, resurfacing and rehabilitation of roadways and structures by Florida State Statutes and by the United States Code of Federal Regulations. The Department manages several funding programs for local agencies. Review the program information below for eligibility requirements, and contact your Local Programs Administrator for additional information today!


Federal Grant Programs

 

Local Agency Program (LAP)

Nationwide approximately 75% or 2.9 million of the 3.9 million total miles of roadway are owned and operated by local public agencies. The Local Agency Program or “LAP” provides towns, cities and counties funds to develop, design, and construct transportation facilities with federal funds. FDOT is the steward of the federal funds and is responsible for oversight of funded projects on behalf of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA.)

 

Eligibility to participate in LAP is evaluated via a certification process to determine staff resources and capabilities in transportation projects as well as assess familiarity with federally funded programs. A variety of resources are available to an agency seeking certification or one who is already active in the program. State resources may be found in the LAP Menu under  LAP Certification. In addition, FHWA has developed the website Federal-aid Essentials for Local Public Agencies. “A transportation resource designed to help local agency professionals navigate the Federal-aid Highway Program. Federal-aid Essentials is structured for busy agency staff who wants further understanding of Federal-aid policies, procedures, and practices.”
