What is LTAP's History?

Established in 1981 as the Rural Technical Assistance Program (RTAP), the now Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP) is a Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) technology transfer program that is charged with bringing training, information and technical assistance to local transportation across the nation.

Currently, there are 51 centers — one LTAP in each State including Puerto Rico and six National Tribal Technical Assistance Program (TTAP). The national program is managed by FHWA’s Center for Local Aid Support under the Office of Innovative Program Delivery. LTAP is a partnership effort with funding provided by Federal and State and occasionally local agency resources as well as universities and the private sector.

Colorado LTAP was established in 1984 at Colorado State University (CSU). The program headquarters moved to the University of Colorado at Boulder where it remained until Front Range Community College (FRCC) became the host of the center in the summer of 2020.  


Colorado LTAP is sponsored by The Federal Highway Administration, 
Colorado Department of Transportation and administered by Front Range Community College
