Caltrans programs that fund Safe Routes to School and bike/ped projects are in flux, and as a result there is not likely to be a Safe Routes to School call for projects this year.  Instead, we are working with Caltrans to encourage that locals prepare their Safe Routes to School project applications for the upcoming Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) call for projects instead.  SRTS projects are eligible for HSIP funding, and the maximum award under HSIP is $3 million, higher than the historical limit on SRTS awards.  More information can be found here.

Caltrans Department of Local Assistance is conducting an HSIP training webinar on Feb 19 at 10am-12pm.  The webinar is designed to get local agencies to start conducting roadway analyses NOW to increase their odds of securing funding before the call for projects is open.  Link to register for the training webinar: http://www.dot.ca.gov/hq/LocalPrograms/HSIP/prepare4nextcall.html
