The National Center for Safe Routes to School funds a local $1,000 mini-grant program that supports the goal of Safe Routes to School (SRTS) programs, which is to enable and encourage children to safely walk and bicycle to school. SRTS programs are implemented nationwide by parents, schools, community leaders, and local, state, and tribal governments.
Mini-grants may fund activities ranging from the nuts and bolts that help start or sustain a program to new ideas that explore the range of benefits of safe walking and bicycling. The National Center invites student and adult leaders to consider their school's needs and interests and to propose solutions that are also part of a broader safe walking/bicycling to school effort.
PLEASE NOTE: At this time, the National Center does not anticipate funding any additional mini-grant cycles until the fall of 2013 at the earliest. To stay tuned about funding announcements, please subscribe to our newsletter and announcement list.
