CDOT announces Safe Routes to School funding

The Colorado Department of Transportation announces a call for projects for Fiscal Year 2017-18 Safe Routes to School (CSRTS) Infrastructure and Non-Infrastructure Projects.  Safe Routes to School programs are sustained efforts by parents, school staff, law enforcement, public health, community leaders and government to improve the health and well-being of children by enabling and encouraging them to walk and bicycle to school.

Eligible activities include, but are not limited to:
  • Infrastructure - Planning, design, and construction of safe school routes and facilities for children to walk and bicycle to and from school
  • Non-Infrastructure - Educating children, parents, and communities about safe walking and bicycling practices and the health and academic benefits that result from walking and bicycling to and from school
The Colorado SRTS program manager will be hosting applicant training sessions at various locations throughout the state in August and September. Current sessions are scheduled for Aug. 25 and Sept. 6 from 1-3 p.m. Attendance is via webinar with some in-person space available. 

Applications are due to CDOT-SRTS by 4 p.m. Nov. 1, 2017.  For more information or to register, email leslie.feuerborn@state.co.us
