New PSRC funding available

$16 million available for transportation alternatives program

A new funding opportunity is now open for applications. 

One of PSRC’s most important jobs is to target federal funds to high priority transportation projects that improve mobility.  

Eligible public agencies in King, Kitsap, Pierce, and Snohomish counties are invited to submit projects for the 2017 Transportation Alternatives Program Project Selection Process.  

The Transportation Alternatives Program is a Federal Highway Administration funding program for community-based transportation improvements such as bicycle/pedestrian facilities, historic preservation of transportation assets, environmental mitigation and others.  

PSRC will be distributing approximately $16 million of federal fiscal year 2017-2020 TAP funds.  

Materials for the Call for Projects are available on PSRC’s website.  

There is a limit of three applications per eligible sponsor, and project requests are limited to $2.5 million per application.  

In addition, all projects must meet the eligibility requirements of the funding program, as well as regional policies and all other federal requirements.     

Applications are due to PSRC by 5p.m. September 20, 2017.
