Grants to USA Indian Tribes to improve road safety in Tribal communities. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to ten business days to complete. The purpose of this program is to reduce serious injuries and fatalities due to transportation incidents such as motor vehicle crashes.
A Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for Tribal Transportation Program Safety Funds (TTPSF) has been published. This notice announces the availability of approximately funding for projects in four categories: safety plans; data assessment, improvement, and analysis activities; systemic roadway departure countermeasures; and infrastructure improvement and other eligible activities as listed in 23 U.S.C.148(a)(4).
Each year under the FAST Act, 2% of the available TTP funds are set aside to address transportation safety issues in Native America. TTPSF grants are available to federally recognized Indian tribes through a competitive, discretionary program. Awarded annually, projects are chosen whose outcomes will address the prevention and reduction of death or serious injuries in transportation related incidents, such as motor vehicle crashes. Transportation fatalities and injuries severely impact the quality of life in Indian country. Statistics are consistently higher than the rest of the nation as a whole.
FHWA advocates the development of strategic Transportation Safety Plans as a means for tribes to determine how transportation safety needs will be addressed in and around tribal communities. For additional information on developing safety plans, see https://highways.dot.gov/federal-lands/programs-tribal/safety/safety-plan-toolkit.
