TDM TIP Set-Aside

The TDM Services set-aside was developed to support marketing, outreach and research projects that reduce single-occupant vehicle (SOV) travel and ultimately reduce traffic congestion and improve regional air quality. The specific goals of the TDM Services set-aside are listed below.

  • Reduce single-occupant vehicle travel
  • Reduce traffic congestion
  • Improve air quality
  • Pilot new approaches to transportation demand management (TDM)
  • Improve awareness of and access to mobility options for people of all ages, incomes and abilities

The 2020-2023 TIP Policy established $1.8 million in federal funds for TDM non-infrastructure projects over the four-year period. The 2020-2021 call for projects will be for $900,000 plus $236,000 unallocated from FY2019, for a total of $1,136,000.
