The deadline for Safe Routes to School Infrastructure grant applications has been extended to September 18, 2018! Check out NJDOT’s press release regarding the extension.
NJDOT received several requests to extend the SRTS application deadline so schools could have more time to collect data on student trips to school. One of the requirements for eligibility is to have tally data within the past two years. The SRTS application deadline extension will allow more communities to apply for these grants that are geared toward enabling and encouraging children to walk and bike to school.
NJDOT and NJ’s Metropolitan Planning Organizations – North Jersey Transportation Planning Organization (NJTPO), South Jersey Transportation Planning Organization (SJTPO) and Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) are offering federally funded programs to municipalities, counties and communities throughout NJ to enhance and improve pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure.
Safe Routes to School (SRTS) grants may be used for infrastructure or construction projects which encourage and enable students from grade K-8 to safely walk and bike to school. Projects must be within two miles of any K-8 school (public, private, charter) to be eligible and example SRTS projects include installation of ADA compliant sidewalks, bike paths, striping, lighting and traffic calming improvements.
