The Transportation Safety Division announces the call for non-infrastructure Safe Routes to School grants.
The Transportation Safety Division has $300,000 available per year in non-infrastructure SRTS programs for the following funding periods:
FY2017 (October 1, 2016 - September 30, 2017)
FY2018 (October 1, 2017 - September 30, 2018)
FY2019 (October 1, 2018 - September 30, 2019)
The available funding is being bundled for a three year window in order to allow applicants advance planning. This is a competitive call and applicants may apply for up to $50,000 per year for up to three years. Project funding will not exceed the available $300,000 per year.
There is a 12% match requirement (88% Federal funds, 12% local match).
The goals of a SRTS non-infrastructure program are to increase the ability and opportunity for children K-8 to:
Walk, roll and bike safely to and from school;
Promote a culture of walking and biking to and from school while encouraging a healthy and active lifestyle; and
Facilitate planning, development and fuel consumption and air pollution within two miles of the school.
A SRTS program is built around the strategies of the six E's: Education, Encouragement, Enforcement, Equity, Evaluation, and Engineering. Note that this application is NOT for engineering projects, which are an activity of the ODOT STIP Enhance process.
Please read through the Non-Infrastructure Application Guidelines to learn about the priorities for this cycle.
