You are asked to comment on any aspect of this information collection,

FHWA's performance; (2) the accuracy of the estimated burden; (3) ways 
for the FHWA to enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the

    Title: Local Public Agencies Training and Technical Assistance 
Needs Assessment Background: The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) 
is charged with implementing a local technical assistance program under 
23 U.S.C. 504 (b). Congress recognized that training and technical 
assistance to the local public agencies (LPA) to provide access to 
surface transportation technology, technical assistance and training 
was necessary and created the Rural Technical Assistance Program (RTAP) 
in 1982. In 1991, through the Intermodal Surface Transportation 
Efficiency Act (ISTEA) legislation, this program became the Local 
Technical Assistance Program (LTAP). There is an LTAP Center in every 
State and PR/USVI--51 total. The program has launched a strategic 
planning process and a lack of data directly linking training to 
improvements in program delivery and innovation deployment outcomes 
posed a challenge to the Agency.
    A needs assessment survey will help inform and identify what areas 
of knowledge that training needs to accomplish within the local agency 
community. The results of the assessment will help direct resources to 
the areas of greatest demand. The survey will be conducted once over a 
30 day period. These are surveys to collect training related 
information and there are no sensitive or personal questions, therefore 
confidentiality is not guaranteed or necessary.
    Respondents: Local Public Agency Public Works Directors and Road 
    Frequency: This is a one-time collection.
    Estimated Average Burden per Response: Approximately 7,800 
responses who will each require an average of 15 minutes to respond.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: The total annual public burden 
hours for this information collection is estimated to be 1,950 hours.

    Authority:  The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995; 44 U.S.C. 
Chapter 35, as amended; and 49 CFR 1.48.

     Issued on: August 22, 2017.
 Michael Howell,
 Information Collection Officer.
