U.S. Department of Transportation Announces $300 Million for Federal Lands and Tribal Projects

December 11, 2018

On October 3,  the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) published a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) making $300 million available through its Nationally Significant Federal Lands and Tribal Projects Program (NSFLTP). Funding under this program is available for the first time to build and repair roads and bridges that serve tribal or federal lands.


The Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act established NSFLTP to provide financial assistance for the construction, reconstruction, or rehabilitation of transportation projects providing access to or located on federal or tribal lands. Under NSFLTP, the federal share of a project can be up to 90 percent and can be used to improve the condition of a critical transportation facility. Large-scale projects with estimated construction costs of $50 million or more are given priority consideration for selection, but the program will accept projects with estimated construction costs of at least $25 million.


Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis and evaluated quarterly, until available funding has been exhausted. The first application deadline is December 17, 2018. After that, subsequent deadlines will be 11:59 pm on the last business day of the next fiscal quarter.
