The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) is inviting government and nonprofit organizations to apply for federal transportation funds available through the Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP).

Through June 15, applications will be accepted for public projects which improve non-motorized mobility, stormwater management and habitat connectivity, scenic accessibility, safe routes to school and more.

Governmental agencies, tribal governments, school districts, private schools and non-profit organizations such as charter schools can sponsor TAP applications. Each eligible application received will be evaluated using scoring criteria detailed on the application website.

Projects require a minimum of five percent matching funds from the sponsor and must be able to receive administrative clearance for a notice to proceed with construction within three years.
