The national Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP) and Tribal Technical Assistance Program (TTAP) are a network of centers—one in every state, Puerto Rico, and regional centers serving tribal governments.

LTAP/TTAP centers help local agencies improve their roads and bridges by serving as an information clearinghouse and supplying them with a variety of training programs, technology updates, newsletters, and personalized technical assistance. Through these core services, LTAP/TTAP centers provide much-needed, centralized, easily accessible training and resources, including:

  • Workforce development classes and training
  • Resources to enhance safety and security
  • Solutions to environmental, congestion, capacity, and other issues
  • Technical publications, training videos, and materials

The State of New Jersey’s LTAP (NJLTAP) is based at Rutgers Center for Advanced Infrastructure and Transportation. NJLTAP trains approximately 3,000 transportation professionals annually in nearly 200 different courses and workshops.
