Tribal High Priority Projects Program (THPP)

Federal Agency


Federal Highway Administration (FHA)


To reinstate and provide funding for the Tribal High Priority Projects program.

Applicant and/or Project Eligibility Requirements

Eligible entities must be federally-recognized Tribal governments. Eligible projects must be highest-priority, emergency, or disaster related projects

Decarbonization Considerations

While this program will fund safety projects generally, applicants should prioritize projects that will decrease the need for private vehicles on the road and increase transit ridership, promote carpooling and ridesharing, and be in coordination with regional transit-oriented development planning. Communities should look to deploy extensive, convenient, well-connected bus rapid transit projects that can align with local, regional, and statewide vehicle electrification plans. High priority projects may center on disaster recovery and can be implemented with long-term climate resiliency in mind.

Equity Considerations

This program provides the necessary Federal support to help Tribal governments implement top priorities, namely recovery from disasters.
