Can crossing guards be funded through this program?

With regarding to the federal Safe Routes to School Program, Section III (Eligible Activities) of the federal program guidelines states, "Program funds should not be used to pay crossing guard salaries, as these are reoccurring costs (although funds may be used for crossing guard training programs)."
