Local communities and public agencies face a variety of capital program improvement needs. These needs directly affect quality of life for residents and the ability of cities and towns to attract and retain businesses. INDOT works proactively to assist Local Public Agencies (LPA) in addressing capital needs.

By statute, INDOT shares gas tax revenue distributed out of the state Motor Vehicle Highway Fund (MVHF) and Local Road and Street Fund (LRSF) with local communities. Distributions out of these funds are made by the auditor’s office to each local community for use on road and street projects

INDOT also makes available 25 percent of the federal funds apportioned to it under Congressional Highway Authorization Bills. This is a practice carried out by internal policy and is done under no requirement of any state or federal statute. INDOT also handles all of the program administration, contract letting and post-contractual Federal obligations for local communities. This alleviates additional financial burdens for local communities and provides a means for all communities to participate in federal-aid funding. 

Important Notices

Information that may significantly impact LPAs using federal-aid will be posted here temporarily. All communications from the INDOT LPA Department are sent through a subscription service called GovDelivery. It is highly recommended that all LPAs subscribe to this subscription service.

LPA Title VI/ADA Compliance    

To remain an eligible sub-recipient for federal funding through INDOT, all LPAs must maintain their compliance with civil rights laws and nondiscrimination policies and procedures. One method INDOT uses to measure federal-aid sub-recipient compliance of these laws is through an annually required survey titled “LPA Pre-Award Certification & Assurances”.

For more information on the survey, please visit our LPA Training website and look under the subtitle Miscellaneous Resources near the bottom to find “LPA Pre-Award Certification & Assurances Survey Guidance”. Prior to the survey opening each year, multiple notices are sent through the LPA GovDelivery subscription service. To subscribe to this service, follow the instructions. For more information on Title VI/ADA Compliance, visit INDOT’s Economic Opportunity webpage.
