Mapping Out Map 21

For nearly 20 years, Main Street communities benefited from projects funded through the federal Transportation Enhancements (TE) program. As a result of the 2012 reauthorization, TE was adapted into a new modified program, Transportation Alternatives. Find out what types of projects are eligible, how much funding is available to your community, and how best to advocate for projects at the local level.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand important changes to the Transportation Enhancement program.
  2. Share replicable best practices from states that are using Transportation Alternatives funding for Main Street projects.
  3. Strategize on methods for funding projects at the local level.
  4. Learn to advance Main Street as an important component of the Transportation Alternatives program.
