Western TTAP is Closing
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Center for Local Aid Support (CLAS) is changing changed the model for delivery of Tribal Transportation Training and Technical Assistance Program (TTAP). The seven existing TTAP centers serving all tribes will be eliminated and replaced with a single National Tribal Technical Assistance Program which will administer five virtual centers focused on specific subjects, the National Tribal Roads Scholar Program, three Safety Circuit Rider/Injury Prevention programs, NTTC agenda development, and the Build a Better Mouse Trap competition.
The Western TTAP Center is suspending all services at the close of business on September 30, 2017 and is working with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to both ensure a smooth and orderly transition between the Western TTAP Center and the FHWA and to minimize any disruption of support to the tribal communities. FHWA is also undertaking a review to determine those services of greatest need to the tribal community and how best to provide them moving forward. Accordingly, please direct all communications regarding TTAP services, resources and requests to Victoria Peters and Danielle Mathis-Lee, (720) 963-3522, or CLAS@dot.gov.
