TA continues to build upon the legacy of the Transportation Enhancements (TE) and Safe Routes to Schools (SRTS) programs by providing funding opportunities for local projects that support additional transportation options, strengthen local economies, improve quality of life, protect the natural environment, and enhance transportation infrastructure.
The Transportation Alternatives (TA) Set-Aside, formally known as Transportation Alternatives Program or TAP, from the Surface Transportation Block Grant(STBG) Program provides funding for a variety of transportation projects that prioritize safety, comfort, and connectivity to destinations for all people who use the street network such as pedestrian and bicycle facilities; construction of turnouts, overlooks, and viewing areas; community improvements such as historic preservation and vegetation management; environmental mitigation related to storm water and habitat connectivity; recreational trails; safe routes to school projects; and vulnerable road user safety assessments.
The Oklahoma Department of Transportation is seeking projects outside of the Oklahoma City and Tulsa adjusted urbanized areas with populations of 0-5,000; 5,001-50,000; 50,001-200,000; and those that are under 15,000 population that fall within the ACOG/INCOG adjusted urbanized boundaries are eligible to apply for statewide funding. Projects inside the Oklahoma City or the Tulsa urbanized areas are selected through a separate competitive process administered by the Association of Central Oklahoma Governments (ACOG- Jordan Evans firstname.lastname@example.org) or the Indian Nations Council of Governments (INCOG- Jane Ziegler Jziegler@incog.org).
