The 2014 Transportation Alternatives (TAP) Program Cycle is Underway

February 12, 2014

The 2014 Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) cycle, formally known as the Transportation Enhancement Program is underway.  The TAP, authorized by MAP-21, provides funding for programs and projects 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.  Also, TAP funding is for recreational trail program projects, safe routes to school projects (SRTS) and projects for the planning, design or construction of boulevards and other roadways largely in the right-of-way of former Interstate System routes or other divided highways.

This year approximately $4.4 million will be available for the MPO for this program. Please note that these funds are anestimated allotment from FHWA, and are subject to change. The minimum TAP project application accepted will be $250,000 with a maximum of $1 million. There are no minimum funding thresholds for programs which do not require design, engineering or construction.  A maximum of two (2) applications per applicant/municipality may be submitted.  Projects and programs awarded/programmed for this cycle will be funded in FY 2017/18.
