TRPA supports transportation project planning and design by directing state and federal funding through the On Our Way Grant Program. The program helps Lake Tahoe communities identify neighborhood-level projects that create mixed-use town centers, encourage walking, biking, and transit use, revitalize the economy, and reduce impacts to the environment.
Local jurisdictions and government agencies, nonprofit groups, educational institutions, and other formalized community groups are all eligible to apply for On Our Way grant funding. The products of the grant program help inform the Regional Transportation Plan, Regional Plan, area plans, and other local and regional plans and codes, and are intended to lead to the construction of capital improvements or the approval of new policies or programs. TRPA has awarded and completed 11 On Our Way grants since June 2014.
