Air Rail Highway Bike/Ped Public Transit

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) is a federal funds recipient of Surface Transportation Program (STP) funds through the Federal Highways Administration (FHWA). NHDOT makes a portion of the total STP funding available to municipalities and other project sponsors (local project sponsors or sub-recipients) to develop, improve, and enhance New Hampshire's transportation network.

LPA projects are managed and match funded (as necessary) to implement eligible projects at the local level. We believe the LPA process provides the benefits of ensuring that the local project sponsor develops a project meeting its needs, within budget, and on schedule. We want the projects to be successful and have developed the LPA Manual to aid in the achievement of that goal.
