Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) — August 2013. Under the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21), enacted in July 2012, Congress restructured the former “Transportation Enhancement” activities by eliminating selected eligible activities and combining some programs. The
Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) provides Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) funding to States and MPOs by statutory formula.
