'FHWA Planning and Research Grants: Program Administration (23 CFR Part 420)' is a 2-hour Web-based Training course offered by NHI, the authoritative source in transportation training.
Recent legislation has introduced changes to the requirements around the administration of FHWA planning and research grants. This course is the first of a series of Web-based Training courses on this topic and provides an introduction to the series. Learners will gain familiarity with terms and general concepts around grants. They will also learn the requirements of 23 CFR Part 420--the regulation that implements the Federal-Aid highway planning program outlined in Title 23 and contains the specific FHWA grant policies and procedures that need to be followed.
The course consists of three lessons:
Lesson 1 (Overview) covers key terms associated with and guidelines and legislation that govern the administration of FHWA planning and research grants, distribution of FHWA planning and research funds, and the steps of the grants funding process.
Lesson 2 (23 CFR Part 420 Subpart A) covers the purpose, terminology, and requirements of grants administration outlined in 23 CFR Part 420 Subpart A.
Lesson 3 (23 CFR Part 420 Subpart B) covers the purpose, terminology, and requirements of grants administration outlined in 23 CFR Part 420 Subpart B.
This course series was revised and republished in April 2018 in response to the Office of Management and Budget's promulgation of 2 CFR 200 (Unified Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles and Audit for Federal Awards; also referred to as the "Uniform Guidance" or "Supercircular") and the enactment of the MAP-21 and FAST Acts. The course includes direct links to the full text of the regulations, as they are discussed throughout the course.
