Title: Information on Tribal Government Transportation Programs.
Abstract: FHWA proposes to fund a Synthesis project through the National Cooperative Highway Research Program. The project goal is to gather information on tribal governments' transportation programs. The information will include funding information, staffing, and administration of transportation projects and programs. Information will also be requested from tribal governments on cooperative projects with state and local governments. The information will be used to prepare a summary of how tribal transportation programs are funded and staffed, and how tribal governments administer programs with the Bureau of Indian Affairs, FHWA, and state and local governments. The information will be evaluated and best practices will be identified. The information will be shared with tribal governments and states for their use in developing and enhancing effective transportation programs for tribal governments.
Affected Public: 100 tribal government transportation staff.
Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: The estimated average burden is 2 hours per respondent. The FHWA goal is to get information from 100 tribal governments at a minimum. The estimated total annual burden is 200 hours.Start Signature
