Trainings and Assistance
One-on-one training and technical assistance is always available from the SRTS office. Grant coordinators are available to assist you by providing more information on the program, guidance on competitive projects, and how to best develop a competitive action plan and funding application.
If you are unable to participate in a SRTS Basics call or regional training, or if you would like individualized training for your community, please contact your regional coordinator to schedule a date and time.
SRTS Basics is a 60-minute training webinar that will help you understand how Safe Routes to School works in Michigan. We will discuss the SRTS planning process, the Five Es, and provide you with the information you need to talk about SRTS in your school and community. The session ends with Q&A, so you will have the opportunity to ask questions and learn from others on the call. No cost to participate.
Registration is required—Calls are limited to 25 participants.
