Oregon: Safe Routes to School infrastructure grants
“Safe Routes to School” refers to efforts that improve, educate or encourage children safely walking or biking to school. The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) has two main types of Safe Routes to School programs: infrastructure and non-infrastructure. Infrastructure programs focus on making sure safe walking and biking routes exist through investments in crossings, sidewalks and bike lanes and flashing beacons. Non-infrastructure programs focus on education and outreach to assure awareness and safe use of walking and biking routes. The 2019-2020 solicitation cycle will distribute a total of $16 million to be awarded to projects that address these barriers two types of barriers for students walking and biking to school. Letters of Intent are due by August 31. Full applications are due October 15.
