Transportation Alternative Program

Transportation Alternative Program Funding

The Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) provides funding for programs and projects defined as transportation alternatives, including on- and off-road pedestrian and bicycle facilities, infrastructure projects for improving non-driver access to public transportation and enhanced mobility, community improvement activities, and environmental mitigation; recreational trail program projects; safe routes to school projects; and projects for planning, designing, or constructing boulevards and other roadways largely in the right-of-way of former Interstate System routes or other divided highways.  Each year, approximately $250,000 is available in TAP funding for our region. For the current application cycle, CIRTPA has made available $260,000 for FFY 2024.

Applications for Federal Fiscal Year 2024 STBG-TAP funds are due to the CIRTPA by 4:30 p.m. on January 10th, 2020.

Please note that any government within the CIRTPA Planning Area is eligible to apply for TAP funding without a CIRTPA member project sponsor.
