by Jackie S on October 28th, 2013

Update: We have created an infographic showing the details of the Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) that you can view or download.

The new Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) solicitation is now underway. This is the new program that has combined the old Transportation Enhancements, Scenic Byways and Safe Routes to School programs.

This program now has a two-step process, first submitting a Letter of Intent (LOI) and second, submitting the full application. Below is information about the new Transportation Alternatives Program and a link to the LOI. Full applications will be available shortly.


The Transportation Alternatives Program is a new competitive   grant opportunity for local communities and regional agencies to fund  projects for pedestrian and bicycle facilities, historic preservation, Safe   Routes to School and more. Minnesota will be soliciting approximately   $13 million across the state.Interested in applying for a grant? Greater Minnesota applicants must submit a letter of intent describing the key components of their project by Nov. 15, 2013. A regional representative will contact applicants   to help review the project proposal and the steps necessary for delivering a federally funded project prior to local communities   and regional agencies submitting a full grant application.Grant solicitation timeline:

  • Nov. 15, 2013 – Letter of intent deadline
  • Feb. 1, 2014 – Full grant application deadline
  • April 15, 2014 – Grant recipients announced

Note: Grant solicitation is currently only available for greater Minnesota applicants.

The structure and development of the TAP is based on the outreach feedback we have heard from our stakeholder process over the last few months.
