Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP)

The next application cycle is anticipated in 2018.  For general guidance, you may refer to the 
FFY18-19 TAP and Recreational Trails Program (RTP) Guide.  

Application Process

When the application cycle is open, Applicants may complete their preliminary application, the Project Feasibility Form (PFF). The PFFs need to be submitted to the SERTPO Program Manager, according to the PFF deadline established by the SERTPO Committee. Once the SERTPO Program Manager receives the PFFs, feasibility reviews will be scheduled.  Applicants, NMDOT and the SERTPO Program Manager participate in the feasibility review.  Following the feasibility review, NMDOT will approve the PFF.  Applicants with an NMDOT-approved PFF will proceed to complete their final applications. Complete application packages are due to the SERTPO Program Manager by the SERTPO-established deadline.

The SERTPO Program Manager will submit final applications to NMDOT by the established deadline. The NMDOT TAP Coordinator will continue processing applications, statewide, for the TAP Selection Committee's project selection.

See Forms for copies of the Project Feasibility Form (PFF), Project Identification Form (PIF), TAP-RTP Application and other forms used in the application process.
