Nevada Department of Transportation accepting applications for TAP grants
November 28, 2017
The Nevada Department of Transportation is accepting applications for Transportation Alternatives Program grants.
Those funds can be used for a variety of projects that improve non-motorized mobility, historic preservation, scenic accessibility and safe routes to school among others.
NDOT officials say they've been awarded nearly $6 million to fund those grants to governments including tribal groups, school districts, private schools and non-profit groups.
Projects require at least 5 percent matching funds from the sponsors. These types of activities are eligible for the money: transportation infrastructure such as traffic calming, environmental management and accessibility to scenic areas.
Non-infrastructure activities include such projects as those that improve the ability of younger students to bike or walk to school.
