Local Labor Hiring Pilot Program

The Division of Local Assistance recently informed local agencies on how to particpate in the new Local Labor Hiring Pilot Program. The pilot program will allow local agencies to use local hiring provisions on their federal-aid projects. Any FTA- or FHWA-funded project advertised by March 5, 2016, can be considered for the pilot program.

To participate in the pilot program, local agencies will need to submit a [SEP-14]1 work plan to their DLAE for forwarding to FHWA. A template and list of general requirements have been created to help prepare a work plan.

  1. The pilot program is carried out under FHWA’s Special Experimental Project No. 14 Authority
