Transportation Alternatives Funds

Click here to view full size picture

The Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) is a competitive grant program that funds projects such as bicycle facilities, shared-use paths, streetscape improvements that improve pedestrian safety, and historic preservation of transportation facilities that enhance Michigan’s intermodal transportation system, promote walkability, and improve quality of life for Michigan citizens. The program uses federal transportation funds designated by Congress for these types of activities.


NATS receives a direct allocation of TAP funds annually from the current transportation bill and these projects will go through a competitive application process to decide who will receive the funds.


How much money is available for each year?
