The Transportation Alternatives (TA) Set-Aside Program provides funding for a variety of generally smaller-scale transportation projects. Agencies eligible to receive TA Set-Aside funds include local governments, natural resources or public land agencies, school districts, Tribal governments, and non-profits. Eligible projects include infrastructure-related projects for non-motorized users, historic preservation related to transportation facilities, Safe Routes to School programs, recreational trails projects, and environmental-mitigation activities related to transportation.
The RTC administers the TA Set-Aside Program for the Reno-Sparks Metropolitan Planning area, and is currently on a two-year cycle for open call for projects. The next open call is projected for early 2025. Updated TA Set-Aside guidance and application materials were approved by the RTC Board on February 24, 2023 and are available under the “Resources” section below.
