EXTRA GRANT SEMINAR ADDED!
There was such a great response to the Maryland State Highway Administration Safe Routes to School grant seminars that an extra seminar was added. The seminar is Tuesday, November 27th and you must register by Monday, November 26th. Please see the new flyers below.
More information from the previous post:
Maryland State Highway Administration has just announced the new Safe Routes to School grant application!
This round will have more than 4 million dollars available to state and local agencies, as well as non-profits. These projects are 100% federally funded (no matching funds required). Safe Routes to School funds can be used for infrastructure (examples: sidewalks, crosswalks, bike racks, pedestrian beacons, ADA ramps) as well as non-infrastructure education and encouragement (examples: project coordination, education programs and materials, special law enforcement details, safety equipment and training for crossing guards, walking school buses).
The first step is to attend a Grant Seminar on Tuesday, November 13th at 8:30am or 1pm at the State Highway Administration Office. You must register for the seminar by November 7th. I will be at the 1p session, I hope to see you there!
If any Greater Washington communities need help planning or strategizing about their Safe Routes to School program, please contact us!
