Transportation Alternatives Program
- Overview The Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) is a competitive grant program that funds projects such as multi-use paths, streetscapes, and historic preservation of transportation facilities that enhance Michigan's intermodal transportation system and provide safe alternative transportation options. These investments use federal transportation funds to support place-based economic development by offering transportation choices, promoting walkability, and improving quality of life.
