Uniform Act

Federally-funded projects which are designed to benefit the public often need to acquire private property in order to be developed - which sometimes results in the displacement of individuals from their homes, businesses, or farms.

The Relocation Assistance & Real Property Acquisition Policies Act of 1970 (Uniform Act) was established to ensure property owners and tenants are treated fairly, equitably, and receive assistance.

The National Highway Institute

NHI was established in 1970 as the training and education arm of FHWA. Its mission is to improve the safety and conditions of the nation's roads, highways, and bridges by building the skills of highway professionals and enhancing job performance in the transportation industry.

NHI's course catalog include hundreds of trainings in more than 18 transportation industry-related program areas.
