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 has an open call for projects now through mid-May. Applicants may submit one application per funding year (Federal Fiscal Years 2023 and 2024) and must submit applications by 4:00 p.m. on May 19, 2023. Updated TA Set-Aside guidance and application materials were approved by the RTC Board on February 24, 2023 and are available, along with the Call for Projects announcement, under the “Resources” section below.
