Transportation Alternative Program Letters of Intent Due July 1
Communities Encouraged to Apply for Non-Motorized Project Funds

The filing period for letters of intent for the Transportation Alternative Program (TAP) will run from June 1 to July 1, 2016.

New Hampshire communities interested in improving pedestrian and bicycling infrastructure can compete for more than $5 million in federal funds that will be used to reimburse up to 80 percent of the costs for such projects.

TAP combines a number of individual federal programs into a single, more flexible program. These include Transportation Enhancement (TE), Safe Routes to School (SRTS), and Scenic Byways. New Hampshire’s annual allocation for TAP is approximately $3.2M ($2.6M Federal). Two years of funding will be awarded in this round.

The overall purpose of TAP is to foster non-motorized transportation infrastructure that is safe, in good physical condition, accessible, and capable of reducing traffic congestion. TAP awards will range from a minimum of $400,000 ($320,000 Federal) to a maximum of $1,000,000 ($800,000 Federal) supporting projects, although communities can use local or other funding sources for more expensive projects.

Additional information, including application instructions, can be found on this web page: http://www.nh.gov/dot/org/projectdevelopment/planning/tap/index.htm.
