Section 1104 of the FAST Act provides for the reservation of funds apportioned to a State under 23 U.S.C. 104(b)(2) to carry out the TA Set-Aside under 23 U.S.C. 133(h). Each State's TA Set-Aside funding is determined by dividing the national total TA Set-Aside funds shown in the table below among the States based on each State's proportionate share of FY 2009 Transportation Enhancements. See the FAST Act Funding Tables. The following table shows the national total for the TA Set-Aside under the FAST Act:
|Fiscal Year||Transportation Alternatives Funds (23 U.S.C. 133(h))|
TA Set-Aside funds are contract authority. TA Set-Aside obligations are reimbursed from the Highway Account of the Highway Trust Fund. TA Set-Aside funds are available for obligation for a period of 3 years after the last day of the fiscal year for which the funds are authorized. This includes funds set aside for the Recreational Trails Program (RTP). Thus, funds are available for obligation for up to 4 years (23 U.S.C. 118).
