Safe Routes to Schools Program

Safe Routes to Schools Program

The New Jersey Department of Transportation’s (NJDOT) federally-funded Safe Routes to Schools (SRTS) Program is now accepting applications through October 14, 2021.

While the SRTS Program typically funds infrastructure and non-infrastructure projects, the NJDOT is accepting only infrastructure applications in this round.  Such projects include the planning, design, and construction or installation of sidewalks, crosswalks, signals, traffic-calming, and bicycle facilities.

Eligible applicants include counties, municipal governments, school districts, and schools.

Nonprofit organizations are not eligible as direct grant recipients; however, they may partner with a local public agency that will assume responsibility for and administration of the grant.

The purpose of the SRTS Program is to:

  • Enable and encourage children in grades K-8, including those with disabilities, to walk and bicycle to school
  • Make bicycling and walking to school a safer and more appealing transportation alternative, thereby encouraging a healthy and active lifestyle from an early age
  • Facilitate the planning, development, and implementation of projects and activities that will improve safety and reduce traffic, fuel consumption, and air pollution in the vicinity of schools
