Alaska Transportation Alternatives Program (ATAP)

The Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) authorized the Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) to provide funding for programs and projects defined as transportation alternatives. The TAP replaced the funding from pre-MAP-21 programs including the Transportation Enhancement Activities, Recreational Trails Program, Safe Routes to School Program. Map-21 apportioned funding distributions to MPOs with greater than 200,000 urbanized area populations, and apportioned funding to rural, urban and a statewide program.
