Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP)

The Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) is a federal-aid program established under the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21). Funding for TAP eligible activities was continued through 2021 as a set-aside in the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act.

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) has announced a new solicitation for Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) projects. This is a great opportunity for communities to fund a bicycle or pedestrian infrastructure project. TAP is federal grant funding, which could fund up to 80% of eligible project costs with a required 20% minimum non-federal local match.
