The North Carolina Department of Transportation’s Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Program was established in 2005 through SAFETEA-LU as a federally funded program to provide an opportunity for communities to improve conditions for bicycling and walking to school. It is currently supported with Transportation Alternatives federal funding through the Surface Transportation Block Grant program established under the FAST Act.
The following guidelines and application package were compiled to provide applicants with detailed instructions, required forms and supplemental information to assist in the preparation of a SRTS non-infrastructure program application. This category of funding is intended to support programs and activities that focus on education, enforcement, encouragement and evaluation elements of a SRTS initiative.
Please carefully review the information and instructions provided here before applying to ensure a competitive standing among other applications.
If additional assistance is needed, please contact the NCDOT Safe Routes to School Coordinator, Ed Johnson, at 919-707-2604 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
