"On July 8, 2021, the Federal Highway Administration announced the availability of up to $10.1-million in grant funding from the Tribal Transportation Program Safety Fund (TTPSF). Tribal governments may apply for funding to conduct transportation safety planning, improve crash data, deploy systemic roadway departure countermeasures and implement other infrastructure projects that reduce the risk of fatal and serious injury motor-vehicle crashes.
Details on how to apply for this funding, including the NOFO and application form, can be found at https://highways.dot.gov/federal-lands/programs-tribal/safety/funds. The deadline for applications is September 9, 2021.
A webinar will review the NOFO on July 15, 2021 at 2:30 p.m. Eastern Time / 11:30 Pacific time. At that time you may join the webinar by following instructions found at https://highways.dot.gov/federal-lands/programs-tribal/safety/funds.
