This is a short survey-type training session intended to introduce participants to the topic of real estate acquisition for FTA-funded projects. This training will describe what a grantee needs to know when acquiring property with an FTA grant. The grant language mandates the implementation of the Uniform Relocation Assistance and Real Property Acquisition Policies Act of 1970, as amended (the Uniform Act). This training will also address other key aspects of real estate acquisition for FTA projects that are not related to the Uniform Act.
- Increase awareness about the impact of the Uniform Act requirements on the acquisition of real property for FTA projects.
- Provide the foundation for FTA grantees to implement a real estate acquisition program in compliance with the Uniform Act.
