TAP Guidelines and Funding Opportunities
The Ports’ Technology Advancement Program is focused on clean technologies and associated infrastructure for port-related mobile sources that operate in and around ports. The Ports have identified TAP funding priority to include zero- or near-zero emissions cargo-handling equipment, harbor craft technologies, ship technologies, locomotive technologies and near-zero and zero-emissions heavy-duty on-road trucks.
As a competitive funding program, the Ports use several approaches to identify and support potential projects. These approaches include Requests for Proposals (RFP), Call for Projects (CFP) and Port-Initiated Projects. Unsolicited proposals may be submitted; however, there is no guarantee the Ports will act upon them. Be sure to check the website periodically for news and announcements regarding funding opportunities!
