School’s in session……..is your state making the grade?
Posted on September, 12th 2018
It’s back to school time, which is a great reminder that there are often improvements needed to encourage safe and healthy walking and cycling to and from school. Safe Routes to School is still eligible for funding under the 2012 federal transportation bill, MAP-21. This is an important consideration for communities – it’s a resource that can enhance the livability of their neighborhoods while supporting an active lifestyle for children.
There’s a new Safe Routes to School Fact Sheet available from the Safe Routes to School National Partnership that can help communities prepare their plans for funding.
Wondering how your state fared in the 2018 Safe Routes to School National Partnership nationwide report card? You can check that, too, here.
