How and when was the program reauthorized?
The program was reauthorized via the FY22 National Defense Authorization Bill, signed on December 27, 2021.
Why is it taking so long to restart the program?
There is a two-step process to restart the TTT program: authorization and appropriation. While the program was reauthorized via the FY22 National Defense Authorization Act, the appropriations bill was not signed until March 15, 2022. Since TTT was not expressly provided a funding amount in the appropriations bill, DoD is in the process of determining the level of funding for the program.
Once program funding is received, how long until program services are back up and running?
The program is currently operating with minimum staff and resources. Once funding is received, we anticipate six months to rebuild the program infrastructure.
