The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) is accepting applications for the 2022 Transportation Alternatives (TA) Set-Aside Grant Program. The TA Set-Aside Program provides federal funds for community-based “non-traditional” surface transportation-related projects designed to strengthen the cultural, aesthetic, and environmental aspects of the nation’s surface transportation intermodal system.

- An overview of Federal Aid programs and the TA Set-Aside Program
- A detailed review of the TA Set-Aside application
- Information on the grant application process
- Details on grant resources, tips, and strategies
- A question-and-answer session with NJDOT Local Aid staff
Registration is necessary to attend the 90-minute webinars. Below are the dates and registration links.

For this TA Set-Aside grant solicitation, the NJDOT Division of Local Aid and Economic Development is requiring pre-application meetings. Prospective applicants can discuss their project concept and get guidance on whether the proposed project is a good fit for the program. Prior to the meeting, applicants must submit a project map (see the map maker tool), a brief description of the project, and a cost estimate.
Applicants in the SJTPO region can schedule their meetings using this calendar. An automatic invitation will be sent to the scheduler and can then be forwarded to the other team members/invitees as needed. Pre-application meetings will be held from April 11th through September 30th. For more information, please visit the TA Set-Aside website or contact Alan Huff, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 856-794-1941.
Grant applications are due on November 3, 2022 at 11:59 PM.
