TRB Webinar: Understanding and Using Census Data for Tribal
Tribal transportation planners are invited to a TRB webinar on Thursday,
October 17, 2019, from 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM ET. This webinar will provide
information about accurately counting tribal communities in the American
Community Survey and the 2020 census. The American Indian/Alaska Native
(AI/AN) census has a significant role in several federal fund
distribution formulas, including the Tribal Transportation Program (TTP)
administered by the Federal Highway Administration and Bureau of Indian
Affairs. The TTP's reliance on an Indian Housing Block Grant regulation
for determining AI/AN population for each federally recognized tribe has
seen fluctuations based on 2016 rule changes. The United States is also
actively preparing for the 2020 census.
This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Native
American Transportation Issues.
There is no fee to attend this webinar; however, sign into MyTRB.org
