Prior to both CSLIP and TAP, the Transportation Enhancement (TE) activities offered funding opportunities to help expand transportation choices and enhance the transportation experience through eligible activities related to surface transportation, including pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure and safety programs, scenic and historic highway programs, landscaping and scenic beautification, historic preservation, and environmental mitigation. The Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) replaced the Transportation Enhancement (TE) activities with the Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP).
The Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) authorized funding for programs and projects defined as “transportation alternatives”, including on- and off-road pedestrian and bicycle facilities, infrastructure projects for improving non-driver access to public transportation, and many more. However, funding for TAP was limited, between $4 million and $6 million per year, the application process was complex. In 2016, the Broward MPO initiated the Complete Streets and Other Localized Initiatives Program (CSLIP) program in order to replace TAP. The CSLIP program offers a streamlined application process and an objective ranking process.
