The purpose of the Transportation Alternatives (TA) Program is to help fund connected infrastructure for non-motorized users.

Eligible entities include local governments, regional transportation authorities, transit agencies, natural resource or public land agencies, school districts, local education agencies, and tribal governments in Martin County.
Eligible projects include non-motorized infrastructures, such as sidewalk facilities, bicycle facilities, trailways, complete streets projects, Safe Routes to School (SRTS) projects, lighting, and safety-related infrastructure.
