Wisconsin Employment Transportation Assistance Program (WETAP)

The Wisconsin Employment Transportation Assistance Program (WETAP) represents an effort to connect low-income workers with jobs through enhanced local transportation services. Lack of transportation is a significant barrier to getting and keeping jobs for low-income workers. Improving transportation services can improve the economic outcomes among these workers and the state.

The WETAP program encourages long-term solutions by providing funding for demonstration grants to cover the expenses of early start-up and development stages of an effective transportation solution. This program integrates state and federal funding (Job Access Reverse Commute) into one application. The goal of this program is for local areas to work together in a collaborative process to assess the transportation needs for low-income workers and develop options for addressing those needs. For purposes of WETAP funding, low-income is defined as family income that is less than 200% Federal Poverty Level.

These funds do not replace other funds that are being used for transportation.
