U.S. Transportation Secretary Foxx Announces $8 Million for Tribal Transportation Safety Improvements
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.
