Welcome to the Local Assistance Blog, “the LAB”. The purpose of this site is to it provide you clarity on issues and contribute to the successful delivery of transportation projects using federal resources. As the Chief of the Office of Policy Development and Quality Assurance, Division of Local Assistance, it is our commitment to provide the “Right Information, to the Right People, at the Right Time”. We have established certain key categories that we hope you will find useful as you progress through your project. These categories are as follows:

  • Policy / Procedures
  • Program Guidelines
  • Training
  • Environmental
  • Right of Way

Our mission is to provide our partners the information and services needed to deliver a safe, sustainable, integrated, and efficient transportation system to enhance California’s economy and livability. By working together we will continue being a leader in managing our transportation system.
