What We Do

Transportation Alternatives Program (TA)

The purpose of the TPA’s Transportation Alternatives (TA) grant reimbursement program is to help fund connected infrastructure for non-motorized users. This federal program, in agreement with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), is an annual competitive application process where projects are submitted to the TPA and then ranked and prioritized for funding of approximately $5.1M annually. Eligible entities include local governments, regional transportation authorities, transit agencies, natural resource or public land agencies, school districts, local education agencies, and tribal governments in Palm Beach County.

Eligible projects include non-motorized infrastructures, such as sidewalk facilities, bicycle facilities, Trailways, complete streets projects, Safe Routes to School (SRTS) projects, lighting, and safety-related infrastructure. For more details about Eligible Project Sponsors and Project Eligibility, select the “Program Overview” link below.

The TA projects are prioritized in the List of Priority Projects, which is presented to the committees and Governing Board each July.
