New Round of Transportation Alternative Program Projects Begins
$6.4 Million Available for Non-Motorized Infrastructure

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) is starting a new competitive selection round for pedestrian and bicycling infrastructure projects under the federally funded Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP).

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, and accessible.

Projects are limited to the following eligible activities:

  • Construction, planning, and design of on-road and off-road trail facilities for pedestrians, bicyclists, and other users of non-motorized forms.
  • Construction, planning, and design of infrastructure-related projects and systems that will provide safe routes for non-drivers, including children, older adults, and individuals with disabilities to access daily needs.
  • Conversion and use of abandoned railroad corridors for pedestrians, bicyclists, or other non-motorized transportation users.
  • SRTS infrastructure activities eligible under §1404 of SAFETEA–LU (20% match required).

Funding Limitations:

  • Minimum project limit is $400,000 (total dollars) – ($320,000 federal)
  • Maximum project limit is $1,000,000 (total dollars) – ($800,000 federal)
  • Project will require at least a 20% match provided by the applicant

Interested applicants need to submit a letter of interest to the Department no later than July 13, 2018 at 4:00pm. Only applicants that submit a letter of interest will be allowed to submit an application for funding. Complete details on the submission requirements and process can be found on the Transportation Alternatives Program website:
