FDOT LogoPlease join Florida Department of Transportation District 3 for a series of Power Sessions on how to use FDOT’s new Grant Application Process (GAP) system.

The GAP system replaced the Local Agency Program Information Tool or “LAPIT” system. In addition to LAP Projects, the GAP system will also be used to manage all the Department grant programs such as SCOP, SCRAP, and CIGP GAP. The system went live on Monday, June 7, 2021.

This training series is intended for local agency staff and consultants supporting local agencies who will use the GAP system and will take a detailed look at the system functionality and how we will be using the system in FDOT District Three. The training will consist of three (3) one hour sessions. Each session we will highlight a different aspect of the GAP system, with each session building on the previous.
