LPA Project Administration

This page is designed for use by Local Public Agencies (LPAs) receiving federal transportation funding for locally-administered projects and  consultants working with LPA administered projects.





The following federal funding categories are included:

  • Transportation Enhancement (TE)
  • Safe Routes to School (SRTS)
  • Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ)
  • National Scenic Byways
  • Transportation Community and Systems Preservation (TCSP)
  • Recreational Trails
  • Planning funds

Any LPAs with projects funded through any of the programs mentioned above must follow the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet's LPA Guide when completing the project.  This site contains the guide and provides links to the most commonly used forms in the administration of these projects.  In addition you will find links to resources such as manuals, policies and websites that may be of assistance during the course of the project. 

While this site is designed to provide general guidance for LPA projects, each of the programs listed above may have additional programmatic requirements not listed in the guide.  It is crucial for all LPAs to review the program guidelines for their specific funding source and contact the appropriate administering office to discuss these requirements and any questions they may have.  A list of all the federally-funded LPA programs and the administering office contact for each program is provided in the navigation bar.
