Tribal Transportation Program Safety Funds (TTPSF)
Each year under MAP-21, 2% of the available TTP funds are set aside to address safety issues in Native America. Funds are available to federally recognized Indian tribes through a competitive, discretionary program. Awarded annually, projects are chosen whose outcomes will address the prevention and reduction of death or serious injuries in transportation related crashes. We recognize that traffic fatalities and injuries severely impact the quality of life in Indian country. Statistics are consistently higher than the rest of the nation as a whole; we advocate the development of Strategic Transportation Safety Plans as a means for tribes to determine how transportation safety needs will be addressed in tribal communities.
Funding goals have been established in four categories under TTPSF: Safety Planning (40%); Engineering Improvements (30%); Enforcement/EMS (20%); and Education (10%).
