The Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP) and Tribal Technical Assistance Program (TTAP) are composed of a network of centers – one in every state, Puerto Rico and regional centers serving tribal governments. The LTAP/TTAP centers enable local counties, parishes, townships, cities and towns to improve their roads and bridges by supplying them with a variety of training programs, an information clearinghouse, new and existing technology updates, personalized technical assistance and newsletters.
Through these core services, LTAP/TTAP centers provide access to training and information that may not have otherwise been accessible. Centers are able to provide local road departments with workforce development services; resources to enhance safety and security; solutions to environmental, congestion, capacity and other issues; technical publications; and training videos and materials.
The LTAP/TTAP operates under a strategic plan and publishes an annual overview of the programs. The annual overview, which includes program statistics, is collected by the Clearinghouse, which provides program support to the LTAP/TTAP.
