FHWA's Tribal Transportation Program Safety Funds (TTPSF)
Since TTPSF was created under the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP21), FHWA has awarded approximately $79 million over multiple rounds of competitive grants to federally recognized Indian Tribes for 765 projects, including to develop safety plans and to address safety issues in Tribal areas. The goal of TTPSF is to reduce deaths or serious injuries in transportation-related crashes in Tribal areas. The FHWA will prioritize projects that incorporate safety into existing infrastructure. Strategic safety planning, data collection and analysis, and the implementation of safety projects are objectives that contribute to achievement of the TTPSF goal. Successful TTPSF projects leverage resources, encourage partnerships, result from strategic safety planning, and have the data to support the applicants’ approach in addressing the prevention and reduction of death or serious injuries in transportation-related crashes.
Eligible applicants for TTPSF discretionary grants are federally recognized Indian Tribes identified on the list of “Indian Entities Recognized and Eligible to Receive Services from the Bureau of Indian Affairs” (published at 86 FR 18552 or future updates). Other entities may partner with a Tribal government to submit an application, but the eligible applicant must be a federally recognized Indian Tribe. A Tribe may submit more than one application; however, only one project may be included in each application. In the event a Tribe submits more than one application, each application will be evaluated separately.
