In recognition of Native American Heritage Month, this webinar will showcase the topic of Tribal transportation safety, including resources, funding opportunities and project success stories. Participants will learn about the Tribal Transportation Program (TTP) Safety Fund that is currently open for federally recognized Indian tribes for projects that reduce fatal and serious injuries in transportation related incidents. Successful TTP Safety Fund projects will be showcased by the Absentee Shawnee Tribe (AST) that address safety concerns identified in their Tribal Safety Plan. The project team will share the steps taken and lessons learned to successfully coordinate the completion of these projects between the AST and the City of Norman, Oklahoma.
Participants will also learn about new safety resources offered by the Rural Road Safety Center including the Road Safety Champion Program (RSCP)- a nationally recognized certificate program designed to build a knowledgeable, safety minded workforce, responsible for operating, maintaining, and designing local roads.
