The purpose of this course is to introduce the participants to the Federal-aid Highway Program (FAHP) and to give them a basic understanding of the major aspects of the program. While some of this information may not be new to all participants, this course will focus on using the presented KSA's (knowledge, skills and abilities) to enable the participants to perform their job more effectively and to make more informed decisions regarding the FAHP.

This update of Federal-aid 101 for States includes supplemental information on the impacts of the Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act, or "FAST Act." On December 4, 2015, the President signed the first Federal law in over ten years to provide long-term funding certainty for surface transportation. The FAST Act authorizes $305 billion over fiscal years 2016 through 2020 for the highway and motor vehicle safety, public transportation, motor carrier safety, hazardous materials safety, rail, and research, technology, and statistics programs. With its enactment, States and local governments could now move forward with critical transportation projects, like new highways and transit lines, with the confidence that they would have a Federal partner over the long term.
