The Local Government Projects Program provides guidance and training for local governments, including municipalities, counties or regional mobility authorities in the development of transportation projects under TxDOT oversight. The program addresses both federal and state requirements, but does not address public transportation, aviation or turnpike projects.

Local governments are responsible to ensure all project requirements are met and, if federal funding is involved, advance funding agreement provisions are met. These projects allow local governments to administer a project and minimize the use of TxDOT resources.
