Delaware Department of Transportation

Transportation Alternatives Program - TAP

Applying for TAP

Project sponsors should first establish if the proposed project is eligible for TAP funding by determining its qualifying category and relationship to surface transportation. If you are not a government agency be sure to secure a government agency co-sponsor for the project. Currently in Delaware, TAP funding can be requested for up to 80% of a project’s total estimated cost. Since TAP only reimburses for paid costs up to these limits, a project sponsor should ensure other sources of non- federal transportation funding is available for a minimum of 20% of the project costs. Once this information has been considered, the project sponsor should prepare and submit a TAP application. ALL applications outside of WILMAPCO jurisdiction should be submitted to DelDOT.
