The Hawai‘i State Department of the Transportation Highways Division is requesting applications and requests for information for the Transportation Alternatives Program funding for fiscal years 2022-2026.

Eligible projects include on- and off-road pedestrian and bicycle routes and facilities, improving non-driver (e.g., children, elderly, handicapped, rural) access to public transportation, enhanced safety features, community improvement activities, and environmental mitigation.

Entities eligible to receive TA Program funds:

Local governments
Regional transportation authorities
Transit agencies
Natural resource or public land agencies
School districts, local education agencies, or schools
Tribal governments
More information on the program and the application form can be found on HDOT Highway’s Division website: https://highways.hidot.hawaii.gov/stories/s/kcrh-vrcf
