Resource: Terms & Definitions

Whether you’re administering your first federal-aid project or considered the expert for your agency, the terms and acronyms used in Local Assistance and the Federal-aid Highway Program can be overwhelming. To help Federal Aid Series students understand some of the terminology, CSU Sacramento has put together a summary of the terms presented throughout the LAPM. They’ve made the resource available to everyone and it can now be viewed here or downloaded here.
The summary includes only a few of the common terms we use. If you would like to contribute more to the list, please add them in the comments below.
