WASHINGTON – U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx announced today that 35 tribes will receive more than $8 million for 54 projects from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA)'s Tribal Transportation Program Safety Fund (TTPSF) to improve transportation safety on tribal lands.

“Like the rest of the country, America’s tribal communities need a greater investment in transportation options that will improve their quality of life,” said Secretary Foxx. “These important funds will not only improve safety, but increase economic opportunity for the people living in these communities.”

The funds will be used for safety planning, engineering improvements, enforcement and emergency services, and education for tribal communities. FHWA received 130 applications from 73 recognized tribes requesting a total of $36.8 million in assistance.

Congress created the program to improve highway safety on tribal roads and other transportation facilities – statistically, some of the most hazardous in the nation because of poor physical condition and other factors. Examples of the grant recipients include:

“Road safety is important to communities everywhere, and especially on tribal lands,” said Federal Highway Administrator Gregory Nadeau. “From improving intersections to building bicycle or pedestrian paths, these new funds will help to make tribal communities safer and better equipped for the needs of the traveling public.”

A complete list of this year’s recipients, and additional detail about the program, can be found online at https://flh.fhwa.dot.gov/programs/ttp/
