Transportation Alternatives Enhancements Act
This bill revises and reauthorizes the surface transportation block grant program (Transportation Alternatives Program) in the Department of Transportation.
States are allowed to allocate funds under the program to counties, metropolitan planning organizations, regional transportation planning organizations, and local governments.
Metropolitan planning organizations that serve an urbanized area with a population of 200,000 or fewer are eligible for funding.
The bill adjusts the funding limits for states to improve the ability of applicants to access funding in an efficient and expeditious manner.
