Tribal Technical Assistance Program (LTAP/TTAP)

The Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) Tribal Technical Assistance Program (TTAP) provides information, technical assistance and resources to tribal organizations and governments. This technical assistance is geared toward building capability within the federally recognized tribes to manage their highway assets. Legislation authorizing the TTAP is found at 23 U.S.C 504(b).

The  LTAP/TTAP network includes an LTAP center in every state (plus Puerto Rico) and seven regional TTAP centers. The TTAP Center, launched in 2018, provides comprehensive transportation training and technical assistance to tribal communities, building skills and expertise to ensure the safety and maintenance of tribal roads.  The program has established five Virtual Centers of Excellence: project delivery, maintenance and operations, safety, planning and procurement, and asset and data management.
