A new bus maintenance facility for the Navajo Nation in Arizona and a new transportation center for the Eastern Band of Cherokee in North Carolina are only two of 100 of transit projects on tribal lands that will share in $32 million in Public Transportation on Indian Reservations funding from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Transit Administration.

The $32 million, of which $17 million will come from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) Tribal Transit Program, will pay for 100 transit projects for tribes in 22 states.

The $17 million in ARRA funds will cover 39 of the projects.
