Office of Innovative Program Delivery
Center for
Local Aid Support

Agencies across the country are facing the same challenges: revenues are falling and budgets are shrinking. Yet transportation officials have ambitious goals: to improve safety, enhance economic opportunity, improve reliability, preserve system assets, accelerate project delivery, and help to create healthier, more livable neighborhoods, just to name a few. The Center for Local Aid Support (CLAS) provides national leadership in the advancement of innovative technologies and practices within Local, Tribal and Federal Land Management Agency transportation networks. The Center focuses on creating an informed and ambitious workforce, promoting the integration of cutting-edge-solutions and delivering real results to enhance our nation's transportation system. Across the nation, the Center works collaboratively with a diverse mix of partners including 58 Local and Tribal Technical Assistance Program Centers. Our programs are designed to put good policies in place on the ground, provide models for other agencies, and inform the federal transportation discussion.
