Purpose

The Tribal Transportation Program Safety Funds (TTPSF) program awards funding to tribal governments for the purposes of transportation projects related to safety, safety planning, and safety/ infrastructure. The TTPSF program emphasizes the development of strategic 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. Projects should have outcomes that address the prevention and reduction of death or serious injuries in transportation related incidents.

A detailed list of eligible projects is provided on page 5 of the application instructions.
