California Department of Transportation

Office of Local Assistance

The Local Assistance Office is responsible for providing federal and state funding to local agencies for the development and construction of transportation projects on their local street and road system. The Office works with federal, state, and local agency personnel to advance projects from planning through construction.

The Office provides engineering, environmental, and administrative support to the local agencies, and serves as their primary contact for policy and procedures, program management, and project implementation.


Many transportation programs are available to local agencies and are administered through the Caltrans Division of Local Assistance. For a complete description of the federal and state programs available for financing local public transportation facilities, please visit Local Assistance Program Guidelines. The annual program totals close to $2 billion statewide.
