Funding Opportunities

FY23 Tribal Transportation Program Safety Fund

*Deadline Extended*

On October 1, 2022, the Federal Highway Administration Office of Tribal Transportation began accepting applications for the FY2023 Tribal Transportation Program Safety Fund. Up to $23,598,400.00 is available; the application deadline is now March 9, 2023.

This funding opportunity is in addition to the $21 million that was available under the FY2022 TTPSF which had a deadline of September 15, 2022. For FY2023 TTPSF, FHWA received $96 million in requests from 150 applications. Because FY2022 grant awards may not be announced before the FY2023 deadline, any applications not selected for funding from the FY2022 funding cycle will also be considered for the FY2023 funding cycle.

Please direct any questions about the TTPSF to the mailbox or call Adam Larsen at 360-619-2601.

On December 1, 2022, FHWA recorded Grant Writing Training for TTPSF and provided Feedback on FY2022 applications. Links to the recording and information below.
