Surplus & Excess Property

FHWA has established procedures by which surplus and excess government property can be transferred to Tribes to support delivery of activities under their FHWA Tribal Transportation Program Agreement.

On October 29, 2019 FHWA recorded a web presentation explaining this arrangement and the processes involved. The recording can be found here.

Getting Started

Tribes with an FHWA Tribal Transportation Program Agreement that are interested in screening and acquiring surplus and excess property must first register for the FHWA Tribal Property Tracking System. Additional steps are required to complete the process and may be found in the detailed procedures. The processing time to establish these accounts can take up to eight weeks. 

The Tribe may also find a sample Property Management System/Procedure here.
