We’re so glad you’re ready to start the SRTS journey! By this point you have probably contacted your grant coordinator, attended our SRTS Basics webinar training, and are ready to register your school to apply for Mini or Major Grant. One of the cornerstones of Safe Routes to School is the acknowledgement that safer walking and biking routes can best be accomplished through a combination of infrastructure and non-infrastructure projects and programs. These are known collectively as the “6 Es”: Education, Encouragement, Engineering, Enforcement, Evaluation, and Equity, and they will help guide you as you develop your project.
The Getting Started Handout is a helpful information sheet to share with and engage stakeholders who may be helpful as you decide and/or pursue major or mini grant funding.
