FY 2019 Transportation Alternatives Program Awarded Grants
Transportation Alternatives Program Press Release - 3/4/2019
Transportation Alternatives Programs Guidance & Application Packet 2019
The Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) was authorized under Section 1122 of Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) and is codified at 23 U.S.C. sections 213(b), and 101(a)(29). Section 1122 provides for the reservation of funds apportioned to a State under section 104(b) of Title 23 to carry out the TAP. The national total reserved for the TAP is equal to 2 percent of the total amount authorized from the Highway Account of the Highway Trust Fund for Federal-aid highways each fiscal year. (23 U.S.C. 213(a)).
The TAP provides funding for programs and projects defined as transportation alternatives, replacing the funding from pre-MAP-21 programs including Transportation Enhancements, Recreational Trails (RTP), and Safe Routes to School (SRTS), wrapping them into a single funding source.
The Oklahoma Department of Transportation is seeking projects outside of the Oklahoma City and Tulsa adjusted urbanized areas with populations of 0-5,000 residents that could be funded with available Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) funds. Funds requested cannot exceed $700,000 per project. Projects inside the Oklahoma City or the Tulsa urbanized areas are selected through a separate competitive process administered by the Association of Central Oklahoma Governments (ACOG) or the Indian Nations Council of Governments (INCOG).
