Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) Grant Program

Description: The purpose of this NOFO is to provide grants on a competitive basis for projects that seek to achieve a reduction in the number of wildlife-vehicle collisions; and improve habitat connectivity for terrestrial and aquatic species.

The application period is now open for up to $145 million in Fiscal Year 2024-2025 funding, under the Fiscal Year 2024- 2026 Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for the Wildlife Crossings Pilot Program. The program helps carry out projects by certain Federal, Tribal, State, and local governments, including municipalities, counties, and others to reduce wildlife-vehicle collisions and improve habitat connectivity for terrestrial and aquatic species.

The funding may be used for construction and non-construction projects and the maximum share of project costs that may be funded with grant funds will typically be 80 percent of project costs, as is standard for Federal-aid projects.

The NOFO is available on grants.gov at https://www.grants.gov/search-results-detail/354738. The deadline for applications is 11:59 PM EST on September 4, 2024. Grant applications must be submitted through Grants.gov.

TRIBAL TRANSPORTATION PROGRAM SAFETY FUND(TTPSF)

Description: Transportation fatalities and injuries severely impact the quality of life in Indian country. Each year under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), as enacted by the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (Public Law 117-58), 4% of the available TTP funds are set aside to address transportation safety issues identified by federally recognized Indian tribes through a competitive, discretionary program. Projects are chosen whose outcomes will reduce fatal and serious injuries in transportation related incidents, such as motor vehicle crashes.

 FHWA advocates the development of strategic transportation safety plans as a means for tribes to determine how transportation safety needs will be addressed in and around tribal communities. See additional information on developing safety plans.

Applications for the 2025 TTP Safety Fund will be accepted October 1, 2024 through January 15, 2025. 

TRIBAL TRANSPORTATION PROGRAM BRIDGE FUNDING

Description: The TTP Bridge Program is focused on improving the number of TTP bridges in poor condition. Federally recognized Indian Tribes may submit an application at any time for eligible TTP bridges for planning, design, engineering, preconstruction, construction, and inspection of new or replacement bridges.
