Today, the Iowa Transportation Commission approved $9,869,044 in total funding for ten statewide Transportation Alternatives Set-aside Program projects.

This program supports projects that will have a statewide or multi-regional impact, expand the state’s multi-modal transportation system, enhance tourism, and provides safe routes to school. The majority of Transportation Alternatives Set-aside program funding is distributed to Iowa’s metropolitan planning organizations and regional planning affiliations for the selection of local projects. The Commission awards Transportation Alternatives Set-aside projects annually. Approximately 20 percent of funding is targeted to safe routes to school projects. Funding is available to cities, counties, school districts, or other eligible organizations through an annual application-based program.
