March 31, 2015: Non-Infrastructure Grant Applications Due

March 31st is the last day to submit an application for a Non-Infrastructure (Activities and Programs) Grant. These grants, for amounts between $5,000 and $100,000 can be used to fund education, encouragement, evaluation and enforcement programs related to Safe Routes to School. The Non-Infrastructure Grant can also be used to fund a SRTS coordinator. Before starting the grant application, applicants must complete a SRTS Activities & Programs Plan (APP). Detailed information about eligibility can be found in the Program Guidelines, and an application timeline can be found on the Activities & Programs Plans for Non-Infrastructure Grants webpage .

May 6, 2015: Bike to School Day

It’s never too early to start planning for Bike to School Day. You may start registering your events on walkbiketoschool.org starting February 11. The www.walkbiketoschool.org website is also a great place to find ideas for your event. Bike to School Day is a great time to host a bike rodeo to teach students safe bicycling skills, or to try out a bike train. Visit the Bike to School Day page for more ideas, downloadable flyers and a list of helpful links!
