In case you missed it, the Virginia Department of Transportation has announced a new round of TAP funding for FY2017 allocations. The deadline for applications is November 1, 2015. A number of workshops have been announced throughout Virginia. Unfortunately, the closest workshop to the Northern Virginia region will be in Culpeper. If you would be interested in attending a webinar hosted by the Safe Routes to School National Partnership on Virginia’s TAP program and how to apply for funding, please contact Matthew Colvin.
The Safe Routes to School National Partnership will be presenting at both the Virginia and Maryland PTA Conferences. Dates for both are as follows:
And finally, we are very excited to share that the Safe Routes to School National Partnership recently held a meeting with a number of regionally focused organizations, including the Washington Area Bicycle Association (WABA), the Institute for Public Health Innovation, Kaiser Permanente, Prince George’s Advocates for Community-based Transit, the Coalition for Smarter Growth, and a member of the College Park City Council to forge a new partnership for advocacy in the region. We are grateful for the time and effort of these organizations and look forward to catalyzing exciting change for the region with them in the future!
