Key highlights on regulations, policies, and program funding for the transportation professional
The recording of the November 30th, 2023, Fireside Chat on Funding Strategies hosted by FHWA's EDC-7 Strategic Workforce Development (SWD) team is now live. This virtual event covered proven funding strategies from workforce development programs and how their impactful partnerships have resulted in access to invaluable resources.
As part of the presentation, April Hendricks-Brown from Missouri DOT (MoDOT) shared how they partner with local organizations as a way of gaining access to funding opportunities, training, and placement capabilities. James Fults also shared how Michigan DOT (MDOT) successfully used 504e funding and lean-on partnerships to benefit their Transportation Diversity & Recruitment Program.
Now in its 7th round, FHWA's EDC state-based initiative identifies and deploys proven innovations that will make our transportation systems more adaptable, sustainable, and safer for all.
FHWA works with state DOTs, local governments, tribes, private industry, and other stakeholders to identify new innovations to champion every two years that merit accelerated deployment.
Section 504(e) of title 23 authorizes state DOTs to use certain federal-aid highway program funds for surface transportation workforce development, training, and education activities.
Program funds available for these activities are the National Highway Performance Program (NHPP), Surface Transportation Block Grant (STBG), Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP), and Congestion Mitigation & Air Quality (CMAQ) Program.
"There can be no doubt that the transportation sector is the most critical sector of our economy."
— Robert Brady
