Tribes moving forward

THE 2019 NATIONAL TRIBAL TRANSIT CONFERENCE

May 20-21

For the sixth time, CTAA will be hosting the National Tribal Transit Conference, in conjunction with CTAA’s EXPO. Native Americans face many unique mobility challenges in accessing jobs, health care, shopping, education and other essential services. There are programs and funding are available to help Tribes meet these challenges and build sustainable tribal transit services- this Conference will help you learn how to effectively use these programs and funding sources.

Background: Native Americans face many mobility challenges in accessing jobs, health care, shopping, education and other essential services. The trips to these destinations can be long, and many tribal areas struggle with continuing adverse economic conditions, such as high unemployment. Historically, resources to address these challenges have been limited, but innovative programs and funding can help build sustainable tribal transit services.

Objectives: During this two-day national conference you’ll learn about:

  • An historic perspective of tribal transit.
  • The basics of tribal transit services.
  • Planning and building a tribal transit program.
  • Funding sources to support tribal transit programs, including FTA’s Tribal Transit Program.
  • Tribal transit success stories.

Cost: $75 for CTAA members, $150 for non CTAA members.
