$42M Available for CA SRTS Funds – Application Deadline 07/15/11

Spread the Word: Funds are now available for Federal Safe Routes to School projects!

Applications can be for funding programs for reducing injuries and fatalities through capital (engineering) projects that improve safety for children in grades K-8 who walk or bicycle to school and through non-infrastructure projects that incorporate education, encouragement, and enforcement activities to increase the numbers of children walking and bicycling to school. Evaluation is a key component of the program and is required for both infrastructure and non-infrastructure projects. The deadline for applications is Thursday July 15, 2011.

Start preparing your grant applications now, as the deadline is only three months away!

Who is eligible to apply?

Any local or regional agency is eligible to apply for SRTS funds. The local or regional agency is the City/County/Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO)/Regional Transportation Planning Agency (RTPA) who serves as the responsible agency and partner to a Project Sponsor such as the School District, County Public Health Agencies and other non-profit organizations. Federally-recognized Native American Tribes in which schools on tribal lands are benefited may also apply for SRTS funds. No local match is required. $1,000,000 is the maximum amount that can be requested for an infrastructure project and $500,000 for a non-infrastructure project.
