Tribal Transit Mobility

The purpose of the Tribal Transit Mobility Grant program is to provide for the transportation needs of tribal communities.

The Legislature created this program as part of the Move Ahead Washington transportation funding package. Tribal Transit Mobility Grant funding is identified under the spending summary at up to $10 million per biennium for the next 16 years.

Tribal transit funds

WSDOT added Tribal Transit Mobility Grant funds to the Consolidated Grant program for the 2023-2025 biennium. We are conducting outreach to our tribal partners that will guide the long-term use of these funds.

Tribes interested in applying for these funds must participate and have their project need identified in a regionally developed coordinated public transportation - human services transportation plan. Contact the regional transportation planning organization (PDF 1.5MB) in your area to ensure that you are able to apply for 2023-2025 Tribal Transit Mobility funds.

Carry chains, practice before leaving

Requiring chains keeps traffic moving during storms rather than closing a pass or roadway.
