Transportation Alternatives (TA)

The TA program provides funding for programs and projects defined as transportation alternatives, including on- and off-road pedestrian and bicycle facilities, infrastructure projects for improving non-driver access to public transportation and enhanced mobility, community improvement activities, and environmental mitigation; recreational trail program projects; safe routes to school projects; and projects for planning, designing, or constructing boulevards and other roadways largely in the right-of-way of former Interstate System routes or other divided highways.

2018 TA Project Solicitation

On September 6, 2018 the Board formally authorized MVRPC staff to solicit qualified member jurisdictions for new transportation projects using MVRPC regionally controlled federal funds (STP, CMAQ or TA).  Funding for TA projects is primarily anticipated for availability in SFY2024. On September 6th, the MVRPC Board of Directors also adopted revised Policies and Procedures for these federal funds.  The policies are used in selecting and programming projects into the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP).  The policies include a list of eligible projects.  Once submitted, applications for proposed new projects will be reviewed and evaluated for possible inclusion in the TIP.

Project Evaluation

Completed applications must be received at MVRPC by 1:00 p.m. October 10, 2018.  When compiling an application, be sure to include all materials requested in the application along with any additional information you feel helps describe the project and its benefits. If you have any questions, please email Paul Arnold or call (937) 223-6323.
