The Transportation Alternatives (TA) Set-Aside program, established under the FAST Act, provides funding for a variety of transportation activities that were previously eligible for funding under separate programs under SAFETEA-LU, including Transportation Enhancements (TE), Recreational Trails, and Safe Routes to School. The TA Set-Aside project selection process was developed cooperatively by VDOT and Virginia MPOs.
The Guide to the HRTPO TA Set-Aside Project Selection Process documents the process used by the HRTPO to select and fund TA Set-Aside projects. The Guide provides general information on the program, including eligible applicants and project types, as well as information specific to the HRTPO TA Set-Aside selection process. The Commonwealth Transportation Board (CTB) approved updates to the TA Set-Aside project selection process at their July 2023 meeting. The CTB approved updates have been incorporated into the guidebook.
The proposed guide update can be viewed via the link below.
All interested parties are encouraged to review the proposed Guide update and send comments to John Mihaly, HRTPO Principal Transportation Planner, at email@example.com or by mail to 723 Woodlake Drive, Chesapeake, Virginia 23320, through November 15, 2023.
