OverviewThe Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) is a competitive grant program that funds projects such as nonmotorized paths, streetscapes, and historic preservation of transportation facilities, that enhance Michigan's intermodal transportation system and provide safe alternative transportation options. These investments support place-based economic development by offering transportation choices, promoting walkability,and improving the quality of life. The program uses Federal Transportation Funds designated by Congress for these types of activities.
