141047 Local Public Agency Real Estate Acquisition training is designed for those who are unfamiliar with Federal requirements when acquiring real property for Federally-assisted transportation projects. This training provides participants with a working knowledge of these Federal requirements when acquiring real property, including relocation guidance related to individuals and businesses.
