Act (FAST), Public Law 114-94 (December 4, 2015).

This is a national solicitation for project proposals and includes the selection criteria and program eligibility information for Fiscal Year 2016 projects.

The primary purpose of these competitively selected grants is to support planning, capital, and, in limited circumstances, operating assistance for tribal public transit services.

Funds distributed to Indian tribes under the TTP should NOT replace or reduce funds that Indian tribes receive from States through FTA’s Section 5311 program.

Priority consideration will be given to eligible projects that help to expand ladders of opportunity.

Examples could include enhancing access to work, educational, and other training opportunities, and supporting partnerships that expand access to other governmental, health, medical, education, social, human service, and transportation providers to improve coordinated delivery of services.
