Webinar: Local Federal Aid 101: An Overview of the Process (PDH)

Presented by David P. Orr, PE
NYS LTAP Center - Cornell Local Roads Program

9:30-3:00 (4 one-hour blocks with 15-minute breaks and one hour for lunch)

Getting federal aid is only the first step in the process to complete a local project. To make a project successful, the local agency needs to understand the steps and the federal and state requirements. During this 4-hour online workshop, David will walk through a federal aid project from start to finish, discuss the steps to a successful project, and review issues that have led to problems in the past. Attendees will learn the roles and responsibilities of the various parties involved and ways reduce stress for themselves and the agencies overseeing the work.

The webinar is free but PDH credit is available for an additional $20.00 Fee.
