Kawerak Transportation Program (KTP)

To assist our communities in building safe and healthy surface transportation and intermodal infrastructure.

The Kawerak Transportation Program is funded by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Tribal Transportation Program (TTP).

The Tribal Transportation Program is a FHWA funded national program that seeks to address transportation needs of tribes by providing funds for planning, designing, construction and maintenance activities.

Our principal goal is to assist our communities in building a safe and healthy surface transportation and intermodal infrastructure. Secondary goals include providing employment and training, and advocacy for the transportation, erosion, and flooding concerns of the Region.
