Implementation Assistance Program
SHRP2 created an Implementation Assistance Program (IAP) to help State departments of transportation (DOTs), metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) and other agencies implement SHRP2 products into their business practices. These awards were made competitively over 7 funding rounds between February 2013 and April 2016. The table below is provided to help agencies interested in deploying SHRP2 Reliability products connect with the agencies who participated in the IAP program to learn about their experiences.
The Implementation Assistance Program provided three levels of participating for State DOTs and other agencies to implement products developed under SHRP2.

Lead Adopter Incentive
