District Department of Transportation (DDOT)
Grants to Washington, DC local governments, agencies, authorities, school districts, and LEAs for a wide range of projects to improve transportation infrastructure. The purpose of funding is to enhance the quality of life for residents by developing transportation options and enhancing the cultural, historic, and environmental aspects of existing transportation infrastructure.
The TAP provides funding for a variety of eligible activities which are considered transportation alternatives. Projects must demonstrate a relationship to surface transportation in order to receive funding. Eligible activities under TAP include:
Facilities for pedestrians, bicyclists, and other non-motorized forms of transportation - This includes the planning, design, and construction of on-road or off-road facilities. Project may include sidewalks, bicycle infrastructure, bicycle parking, pedestrian and bicycle signals, traffic calming techniques, lighting and other safety infrastructure, and upgrading facilities for compliance with ADA requirements.
Safe routes for non-drivers - Eligible costs under this activity include the construction, planning, and design of infrastructure-related projects and systems that will provide safe routes for non-drivers, including children, older adults, and individuals with disabilities to access daily needs.
Conversion and use of abandoned railroad corridors for trails - This activity provides for the acquisition of abandoned railway corridors for the development of pedestrian or bicycle trails. Intent must be shown that a pedestrian and bicycle trail will be built within ten years of the acquisition of the corridor.

a) Address storm water management, control and water pollution prevention or abatement related to highway construction or due to highway run-off
b) Reduce vehicle-caused wildlife mortality or to restore and maintain connectivity among terrestrial and aquatic habitats
