The NJ SRTS Resource Center conducted phone interviews with recipients awarded SRTS grant funds from 2007 to 2015 and queried about grantee experiences, progress, challenges, and plans for the future. These interviews yielded: 1) an analysis of the grant implementation process, and 2) case studies detailing grants awarded to four NJ municipalities—Garfield City was one of the four municipalities.

Garfield City received three grants through the NJ SRTS program.  Garfield received an $18,000 non-infrastructure grant at Thomas Jefferson School. Another non-infrastructure grant improved connections between the Garfi eld YMCA and three elementary schools, Christopher Columbus, Washington Irving, and Woodrow Wilson Schools.  Garfield received its first infrastructure improvement grant of $280,000 to advanced pedestrian safety at the Washington Irving School and James Madison School.
