Safe Routes to School Funding is Now Available

Applications are currently being accepted for the Safe Routes to School Program. The program is funded through the Federal Highway Administration’s Federal Aid Program and is being administered by the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT), in partnership with the SJTPO, the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC), and the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority (NJTPA).

The program’s mission is to partner with schools and local communities to enable and encourage school-age children to walk, bike, or travel by other wheeled devices to school. The program also aims to make walking, bicycling, and wheeling to school a safer and more appealing transportation alternative, fostering a healthy and active lifestyle from an early age. Projects and activities are designed to improve safety, reduce traffic, lessen fuel consumption, and decrease air pollution in the vicinity of schools.

Applications are due November 17, 2023. Visit the Safe Routes to School webpage for information on scheduling a MANDATORY Pre-Application Meeting, available training webinars, and the application process.
