Overview

You are participating in a training session sponsored by the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). It is part of a continuing educational series designed for tribal governments entitled Transportation Decision–making: Information Tools for Tribal Governments. The series offers modules in transportation planning, transportation programming, intergovernmental relations, safety and asset management. This is shown in Figure 1.

Each of the training modules is laid out in this graphic of the training module series. At the top of the image is the Introduction to Planning module. Below are three modules, Developing a Long-Range Transportation Plan, Data Collection and Use, and Public Involvement, aligned in a row labeled “planning.” Underneath these modules are two more, Tribal Consultation and Partnering and Leveraging aligned in a row labeled “Tribal Intergovernmental Relations.” Below them are four modules, Developing the Transportation Improvement Program, Funding Resources, Financial Planning, and Project Prioritization, aligned in a row labeled “programming.” In the bottom-most row, labeled “other elements,” are the remaining two modules, Safety and Asset Management. All of the modules are encompassed in a large circle with the rows labeled just outside.
