The Maryland State Highway Administration (SHA) is seeking proposals for projects that would be funded through the Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP). Created last year under MAP-21, the TAP Program offers funding to eligible activities including projects to provide safe routes for non-drivers, community improvement activities and environmental mitigation activities. Projects may include on and off-road facilities for pedestrians, bicyclists and other non-motorized transportation.
To be eligible, projects must have a sponsor who has committed at least 20% of project costs. However, as the website indicates, projects that provide more than the minimum 20% cash match will be considered stronger and more qualified applicants during the selection process.
SHA will accept applications through May 15.
