FTA Tribal Transit Program Virtual Consultation (Nov. 2)

Published on: October 23, 2023

FTA is conducting a consultation with Tribal Nations and requesting comments related to the Tribal Transit Program (TTP). Under the Biden-Harris Administration, FTA’s Tribal Transit Program has grown significantly. Compared to the Federal support before 2021, our current annual funding for Tribal formula and competitive programs has increased by 31 percent.

FTA is increasing technical assistance efforts at the national and regional levels to ensure Tribal leaders and grant managers have the tools they need to successfully apply for grants and run efficient transit programs. This consultation reflects FTA’s commitment to ensuring our programs and policies are responsive to Tribal needs and part of a formal process to ensure the TTP is well-administered alongside increased funding available, a growing number of Tribes participating and other programmatic changes.

FTA issued a notice in the Federal Register seeking comment on how the FTA’s Tribal Transit competitive program and technical assistance are administered. The first consultation was held in person in Anchorage last month as part of the National Transportation in Indian Country annual conference.

Learn more and provide feedback during this virtual consultation scheduled for Thursday, November 2 at 1 PM CT. There will be an opportunity for participants to provide feedback and comments.
