Webinar on the New Department of Transportation Tribal Self-Governance Program and Other Tribal Transposition Provisions in the FAST Act

On Monday, January 11, 2016, at 3:00 PM EST the Self-Governance Communication & Education Consortium staff along with Geoff Strommer and Michael Willis of Hobbs, Straus, Dean & Walker, LLP will co-host a webinar on the new Department of Transportation (DOT) Tribal Self-Governance Program. Through this extension of self-governance to the DOT, tribes will be able to obtain all of their transportation funds (including not only their Tribal Transportation Program funds, but also transit, Federal-aid and other DOT funds) directly through DOT under one self-governance agreement. The new transportation authorization law (the FAST Act) also provides funding increases for the Tribal Transportation Program and the Tribal Transit program as well as a number of technical changes to these programs.

Sign up for the webinar here: https://cc.readytalk.com/cc/s/registrations/new?cid=c9sk2qxtzffb to learn more about these important changes and what new opportunities they create for your tribe.

For further information on the FAST Act, see our General Memorandum 15-082 of December 11, 2015.

Please let us know if we may provide additional information regarding the FAST Act or assistance with signing up for the webinar.
