Tribal Transportation Program (TTP)
The Tribal Transportation Program (TTP) is the largest program in the Office of Federal Lands Highway. Established in 23 U.S.C. 202 to address the transportation needs of Tribal governments throughout the United States, the program receives $450,000,000 annually to provide safe and adequate transportation and public road access to and within Indian reservations, Indian lands, and Alaska Native Village communities. A prime objective of the TTP is to contribute to the economic development, self-determination, and employment of Indians and Native Americans.
The Tribal Transportation Program is funded by contract authority from the Highway Trust Fund and is subject to the overall Federal-aid obligation limitation. Funds are allocated among Tribes using a new statutory formula based on tribal population, road mileage and average tribal shares of the former Tribal Transportation Allocation Methodology (TTAM) formula.

With the passage of MAP-21, tribally owned bridges must now be inspected according to NBIS requirements. FHWA’s Office of Bridges and Structures hosted a webinar, August 7, 2014 for Tribal Governments on the history of the National Bridge Inspection Standards (NBIS) and their general requirements, with a section considering the effects on Tribal Governments.

The FHWA is revising the NBIS Regulations through a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) which will incorporate NBIS requirements for tribally owned bridges. The NPRM should be published in the Federal Register for public comments in a few months.
