Proceedings from SSTI Community of Practice Meeting – Making the most of the Transportation Alternatives Program (SSTI, 2013)

MAP-21 makes some substantial changes to the funding stream that has fueled pedestrian and bicycle projects around the country. Among the changes in the new Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP): combining previously separate programs, creating a sub-allocation requirement for MPOs and a population-based funding formula, and changing the entities that can apply for funding.
SSTI held a meeting for our partner states and invited MPO representatives to review the state of the program and focus on ways that DOTs and their local partners can select, design, and deliver the projects that best advance pedestrian and bicycle mobility and access.
The findings and key points of the discussions are being made available for the public. The document below is a draft, which will be circulated to the attendees. The final proceedings will be posted here after comments are received.
