The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) is now accepting applications from municipalities and non-profit incorporated groups to fund bicycle, pedestrian, multi-use path and transportation-related projects that reduce congestion and help meet the Clean Air Act requirements.
The Federal Highway Administration has made $98.7 million available to fund Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) and the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program (CMAQ) in New York. Projects must be related to the surface transportation system, provide full access to the public and be sponsored by a municipality, a state agency or public authority eligible to administer federal transportation funds.
NYSDOT will host four webinars and workshops throughout the state next month and will provide opportunities to review applications before the deadline with department staff. Applications are due Friday, October 21.
