The most recent federal transportation funding act, Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act (FAST) was signed into law in December 2015 by President Barack Obama. This legislation established the Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP), as money set aside for transportation alternatives. In New Hampshire this includes funding for formerly separate program such as Safe Routes to School (SRTS), Transportation Enhancements (TE), and the Scenic Byways. This funding also supports project such as off-road trails, pedestrian and bike facilities, construction and planning related to infrastructure for non-drivers.
Through the NH Department of Transportation funding is offered through competitive grant rounds. In the most recent grant round twelve communities were awarded funding for a range of projects. The winners and project are explained in an NH DOT press release from January 2017.
