INHERENCY—A2: TTP SOLVES NOW



TTP is not enough

NCAI 11 (NATIONAL CONGRESS OF AMERICAN INDIANS “SENATE COMMITTEE ON INDIAN AFFAIRS HEARING: Oversight hearing on tribal transportation: Paving the way for Jobs, Infrastructure,

and Safety in Native Communities”, September 15, http://www.indian.senate.gov/hearings/upload/Jefferson-Keel-FINAL-testimony.pdf)



The Tribal Transit Program provides grant transit funding through a national competitive process to federally-recognized tribes. The Tribal Transit Program funding level began at $8 million for FY 2006 and increased to $15 million for FY 2010. Since the initiation of the Tribal Transit Program, FTA has awarded approximately 236 grants to tribes totaling $60 million. However, the total amount requested by tribes who have applied for the Tribal Transit program is approximately $189 million. So, even though the amounts that have been awarded thus far are a good start on addressing the immense need for public transportation in Indian Country, the overall need is much greater.
