PLHD Webinar Announced

NOTE: PLHD (Public Lands Highways Discretionary) is one of the 12 Discretionary Programs currently being solicited by FHWA.

FHWA will be hosting a webinar to discuss PLHD project selection criteria and ways to make your PLHD application as competitive as possible. These sessions are open to all prospective applicants and will focus on the project selection criteria, especially the emphasis on submitting projects that are consistent with the strategic transportation goals and priorities of Federal Land Management Agencies and Tribal governments, and job creation as a policy consideration.

In addition, the sessions will emphasize the importance of preparing a technically sound application, including the importance of a good project title and abstract. The presentation and additional handouts will be downloadable during the webinar. Time will also be reserved for questions and discussion. Sessions will be recorded and made available afterward. A written transcript can also be provided afterward upon request.

December 5, 2011, 10:00am-11:30am PST — Open Session for Preference States (Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, New Mexico, Montana, Oregon, Utah and Wyoming)
