$8.9 Million Announced for Tribal Transit Development

This is the second year of Bipartisan Infrastructure Law’s funding.

The Federal Transit Administration announced on Tuesday that the next installment of funding for the Tribal Transit Program has been made available. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law allocated five years of funding to update or replace transit vehicles for Tribal nations. Through this funding, $8.9 million in competitive funding has been made available for the 2024 fiscal year.

“Last year, I was pleased to meet with representatives from the Nez Perce and Coeur D’Alene Tribes to hear about the significance of this support for their transit systems,” said FTA Administrator Nuria Fernandez. “The stories they told echo across our nation. Everyone in our country wants an easier trip to the store, a quicker ride to work, or a more comfortable way to go visit their elders.”  

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For FTA Administrator Fernandez as she coordinates with Tribes to distribute these funds.
  • That this funding goes to Tribes most in need of public transit updates.
  • For administration officials as they continue working with the Indigenous peoples of America.
