Local Assistance Division - Qualification Program

LTAP logo

In an effort to continue to help localities successfully administer transportation projects, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is working to establish a qualification program.

As a Federal Highway Administration Every Day Counts (EDC) supported program, the qualification program will provide a consistent method of determining a locality’s readiness to administer federal projects.

The program includes a set series of on-line and classroom training sessions that provide a high level overview of the federal requirements for locally administered projects.

The program will focus on federally funded projects and all localities that administer a federal project will be required to have at least one full-time staff member that has completed the qualification program before the end of 2020.

The Qualification Program is only open to local governments, planning district commissions, and consultants.
