2017 Transportation Alternatives Set-Aside Program CFP

The Transportation Alternatives Set-Aside (TA Set-Aside) Program was authorized under Section 1109 of Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act (FAST Act) (the current transportation funding and authorization bill) and provides funding for projects defined as transportation alternatives.  The TA Set-Aside Program is similar to the former Transportation Alternatives Program, Transportation Enhancement, and Safe Routes to School programs.

The 12-county NCTCOG Metropolitan Planning Area has been sub-allocated approximately $23 million in TA Set-Aside Program funds which will be available to award as part of a 2017 Call for Projects in our region.  General types of projects eligible under this program include on- and off-road pedestrian and bicycle facilities, infrastructure projects for improving non-driver access to public transportation and enhanced mobility, and pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure associated with Safe Routes to School (SRTS) projects that will substantially improve safety and the ability for students to walk and bicycle to school.
