Section Title

Transportation Alternatives Program

MAP-21 provides funding for a variety of alternative transportation projects, including many that were previously eligible under separately funded programs. The Transportation Alternatives (TA) Program replaces funding from pre-MAP-21 programs* wrapping them into a single funding source.

The law requires selection of projects through a competitive process. MDT has issued a call for projects for FFY 2015 and FFY 2016 funding. The application period will close on July 31, 2015.

If you have questions about the TA program, please contact:

* Pre-MAP-21 programs include Transportation Enhancements, Recreational Trails, Safe Routes to School, and other discretionary programs. Montana’s Recreational Trails Program is administered by the Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks Department. RTP applicants can also apply for TA and RTP funding. MDT and FWP will keep each agency informed of awards granted through their programs. Information on the RTP can be found on the Recreation Grants website.
