Grants to USA Indian Tribes to address transportation safety challenges in their communities. Applicants are advised that required registrations must be completed prior to applying. Funding is intended for projects that address safety issues and hazards on public roads.
The TTPSF helps prevent and reduce deaths or serious injuries in transportation-related crashes on Tribal lands. The TTPSF emphasizes the development of strategic Tribal Transportation Safety Plans using a data-driven process as a means for Tribes to determine how transportation safety needs will be addressed in Tribal communities. Tribal Transportation Safety Plans are a tool used to identify risk factors that lead to serious injury or death and organize various entities to strategically reduce risk. Projects submitted must be data-driven, must be consistent with a comprehensive safety strategy, and must correct or improve a hazardous road location or feature or address a highway safety problem (23 U.S.C. 202(e)).
Safety data is considered critical for informed transportation safety decisions, as such TTPSF also places an emphasis on assessment and improvement of traffic records systems (primarily crash data systems). Guidelines for conducting a traffic records assessment can be found in the Guide for Effective Tribal Crash Reporting, National Cooperative Highway Research Program Report 788, published by the Transportation Research Board at http://www.trb.org/Main/Blurbs/171540.aspx.
Successful TTPSF projects leverage resources, encourage partnership, and have the data to support the applicants' approach in addressing the prevention and reduction of death or serious injuries in transportation-related crashes.
For purposes of awarding funds under this program in FY 2020, FHWA has identified three eligibility categories: safety plans; data assessment, improvement, and analysis activities; and infrastructure improvements and other eligible activities as listed in 23 U.S.C. 148(a)(4).
