U.S. Department of Transportation Announces $5 Million Funding Opportunity for Tribal Transit Projects Nationwide

FTA today announced the opportunity to apply for $5 million in fiscal year 2018 competitive grant funding to support transit for Native American tribes and Alaska Native villagers in rural areas.

FTA’s Tribal Transit Program supports public transportation for Native American tribes by providing access to jobs, schools, and health care, as well as meeting the needs of elders, people with disabilities, and youth in rural areas where transit is sparse or nonexistent.

Proposals must be submitted by Monday, September 10.
