We are in a new funding environment under MAP-21, the new federal transportation bill that goes into effect on October 1st. Money for Safe Routes to School and bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure has been combined into a smaller funding pot. The states can transfer the money to road uses and the money that comes to the regional level can also be used for road uses. But we can take action.
Learn how to show decision makers the importance of Safe Routes to School. Just announced is a new webinar: Engaging Policymakers: How Site Visits and Events Can Inspire Policy Change to Support Your Program. The webinar will give examples and the how-to of creating an event that will show Safe Routes to School is vital to your community.
