The TPCB Program is offering direct technical assistance to Tribes by soliciting applications for
tribal transportation planning peer exchanges and conference support. The Peer Program is a free
resource for agencies in need of transportation planning assistance. The program pays for travel,
accommodations, meals, and incidental expenses associated with on-site peer exchanges and offers
workshops, roundtables, and webinars to participants free of charge. Interested agencies are
encouraged to apply for assistance if they have a clearly identified transportation planning
problem to solve and are interested in working with the Federal Highway Administration staff to
plan and organize an event. Applications for peer events are accepted on a rolling basis.
Conference support applications are also accepted on a rolling basis from organizations offering a
tribal transportation conference with a planning track. Applications must be submitted three months
before the conference date.
