$1.1 million of Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) funding is reserved for applications addressing environmental mitigation efforts relating to stormwater and highways. Also, the former $50,000 cap on federal funding for salt/sand shed construction projects has been omitted. Potential project ideas include:

  • Bank stabilization
  • Culvert replacement
  • Ditching
  • Infiltration basins
  • Planning studies for stormwater systems
  • Swirl separators
  • Phosphorous control plans
  • Check dams
  • Retaining walls
  • Salt sheds (within 50 feet of a water body)

Solicitations will be distributed soon and are due this fall. Online workshops are recommended and will be offered soon after the solicitations are distributed. Additional information is available here for environmental mitigation projects as well as other eligible TAP project types.
