Local public agencies face a variety of capital program improvement needs. These needs directly affect quality of life for residents and the ability of cities and towns to attract and retain businesses. INDOT works proactively to assist Local Public Agencies (LPA) in addressing capital needs.
INDOT shares gas tax revenue from the state Motor Vehicle Highway Fund (MVHF) and Local Road and Street Fund (LRSF) with LPAs. INDOT also makes available 25 percent of the federal funds apportioned to it under Congressional Highway Authorization Bills. The program that administers and oversees the use of these funds is called the INDOT Local Public Agency Program (LPA Program).
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) signs an agreement with each State Department of Transportation to allow states to oversee the responsibilities and execution of their Local Public Agency Program. INDOT’s LPA Program’s Guidance Document is the resource manual for INDOT’s LPA Program. It is the primary source of program information and guidelines that should be followed during an INDOT LPA project from cradle to grave. Revisions to the LPA Guidance Document can be found here.
When INDOT agrees to facilitate a federal-aid project with an LPA, both parties sign the INDOT-LPA Contract. The LPA Local Projects Letting Prep Schedule 2015-2022 is the schedule LPAs use to track progress and meet required timelines during project development.
The INDOT LPA Program is a reimbursement program, meaning the LPA pays for project billings as they incur and then submits the LPA Invoice-Voucher for reimbursement of the federal funding percentage agreed upon for their project.
Information that may significantly impact LPAs receiving federal-aid through INDOT will be posted here temporarily. All communications from the INDOT LPA Department are sent through a subscription service called GovDelivery. It is highly recommended that all LPAs read the instructions to subscribe.
The process for hiring a consultant for a federal-aid project must follow specific requirements set by the Federal Highway Administration. For more about this process and resources you will need, visit our Local Public Agency Program Consultant Information webpage.
When federal funding opportunities are available for Local Public Agencies through INDOT, they will be posted on the Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) webpage.
