Governor Scott Walker announced that 29 agencies across the state will receive $15.7 million in funding for Transportation Alternative Program (TAP) projects. TAP projects are federally-funded, smaller scale transportation projects have a utilitarian purpose which expand travel choice, strengthen the local economy, improve the quality of life and protect the environment.

“It's important that both urban and rural residents have safe options to get to school and work,” said Walker. “This program enhances public mobility, economic development and the overall quality of life for our citizens.”

Examples of eligible TAP infrastructure projects include sidewalks, pedestrian amenities and wayfinding, bike lanes, bike parking and bike share systems (capital costs, not operating costs), all meant to improve safety for pedestrians and bicyclists. Examples of TAP non-infrastructure projects include Safe Routes to School programs and city-wide, district-wide or school specific bike/pedestrian plans.

TAP projects are generally funded 80 percent federally, with a 20 percent local match. Individual awards can be seen at the Wisconsin Department of Transportation website. Federal funds are capped at the award amount listed.
