This training is recommended for all Local Agencies seeking federal Emergency Relief funds after an emergency/disaster. These events may be attributed to nature or manmade, and your agency becomes eligible as soon as the governor or president declares the event an emergency/disaster. The intent of this training is to provide local government agencies with an overview of the FHWA Emergency Relief (ER) program. This training addresses the process of applying for and receiving Emergency Relief (ER) funds from FHWA for damages on Federal-aid eligible roadways.
