Safe Routes to School Grants

The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) offers infrastructure grant funding for the Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Program. This federally funded program is administered by NJDOT, in partnership with the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority (NJTPA), the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC), and the South Jersey Transportation Planning Organization (SJTPO).

Safe Routes to School Grants may be used for infrastructure (construction) projects which encourage and enable students from grades K-12 to safely walk and bike to school within 2 miles of the school. Municipalities, counties, schools and school districts are welcome to apply! Examples of eligible SRTS projects include installation of ADA compliant sidewalks, bike paths, striping, lighting, signals, traffic calming improvements, etc.

How to Apply for SRTS Grants:

All applicants will be required to submit SRTS applications online using SAGE (System for Administering Grants Electronically) available on NJDOT’s website. If you belong to a county or municipality you already have an Authorized Official registered with access to SAGE.

If you belong to any other type of organization, you may request access as an Authorized Official directly through NJDOT SAGE.
