Research for the AASHTO Standing Committee on Public Transportation. Task 44. Curriculum for New State DOT Transit Grant Managers in Administering Federal and State Transit Grant Programs

The fast and growing departure of transit grant managers in state departments of transportation (DOT's) creates an urgent need to quickly train persons to successfully undertake transit grant program management responsibilities. A training curriculum for use by mid-level state DOT transit division directors would provide good guidance in training new staff for transit grant management duties. The research addressed the tasks required to successfully manage transit grants, the courses available to gain proficiency in those listed tasks, as well as an identification of gaps where no current formal training for transit grant management tasks currently exists.
