Besides raising taxes and acquiring grant funding, what are innovate ways that local programs have used to continually fund adult crossing guards?

Unfortunately federal Safe Routes to School funding cannot be used for crossing guard salaries. However, supplies for volunteer crossing guard programs may be eligible in your state's program. To learn more about which items and activities are eligible for SRTS funds in your state, contact your State SRTS Coordinator. To find the SRTS Coordinator for your state, please visit our Find State Contacts page.

Another option is to request police officers as crossing guards. Sometimes police departments will partner with schools to ensure student safety during the morning and afternoon school trips.
