Tribal Transportation Planning Financial Assistance

The Federal Highway Administration's Office of Planning offers free technical assistance on policy, program, and technical issues to State, local and tribal transportation agencies. The Transportation Planning Capacity Building (TPCB) Program is designed to help transportation partners by offering technical assistance by inviting peers from fellow agencies to assist with this effort.

The TPCB Program is offering direct technical assistance to Tribes by soliciting applications for tribal transportation planning peer exchanges and conference support. The Peer Program is a free resource for agencies in need of transportation planning assistance. The program pays for travel, accommodations, meals, and incidental expenses associated with on-site peer exchanges and offers workshops, roundtables, and webinars to participants free of charge. Interested agencies are encouraged to apply for assistance if they have a clearly identified transportation planning problem to solve and are interested in working with the Federal Highway Administration staff to plan and organize an event. Applications for peer events are accepted on a rolling basis. Conference support applications are also accepted on a rolling basis from organizations offering a tribal transportation conference with a planning track. Applications must be submitted three months before the conference date.
