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-8 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.
