August 8 Webinar to Focus on Tribal Transit Program Funding Opportunity

At 2 p.m. EDT Wednesday, August 8, FTA will host a webinar to provide more information about FTA's Tribal Transit Program (TTP) competitive funding opportunity. Join FTA program staff to learn more about the funding, application eligibility and criteria, and the submission process. FTA issued its Notice of Funding Opportunity for the Tribal Transit Program July 11. 

The Tribal Transit Program awards funds competitively to help with planning, capital, and, in limited circumstances, operating assistance for tribal public transit services. Funds distributed to Indian tribes under the TTP should not replace or reduce funds that Indian tribes receive from states through FTA’s Formula Grants for Rural Areas (Section 5311) program.

Last year, FTA received 73 project proposals from tribes totaling approximately $14.2 million, although only $5 million was available for award. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about the TTP and how to apply before the application deadline of September 10. Advance registration required.
