LAPP has two required training opportunities for those interested in participating in the program. The first is an Applicant's Training, which is held during the month when the call for projects opens (typically August). Any local government MPO member interested in accessing funds through the LAPP process for a transportation project must have a staff member in attendance at the Applicant's Training.
The second training is the Awardee Project Management Training. This training his held after the MPO Executive Board awards projects (typically in February or March). If an MPO member government is successful in applying for LAPP funds, the project manager is required to attend the Awardee Project Management Training.
The trainings cover MPO rules and policies pertaining to the LAPP program, and NCDOT and FHWA regulations pertaining to the federal funds awarded through LAPP. Additional resources are also available in Policies & Administration.
