Transportation Enhancements (TE) are transportation-related activities designed to strengthen the cultural, aesthetic, historic, and environmental aspects of our transportation infrastructure.
Congress passed the most current transportation bill, the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21), in 2012. Dedicated funding for the federal TE program was eliminated under MAP-21. States are able to use their remaining TE funding, however, no additional TE funds are available to the states.
Some activities eligible for TE funding are now eligible under the Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP). Please see the Transportation Alternatives Program Federal Guidance for a list of eligible activities.
