Applications now open for SDOT’s Safe Routes to School Mini Grants

Posted by Danielle Anthony-Goodwin on April 8th, 2014

bikeSDOT is now accepting applications for mini-grants of up to $1,000 to fund projects that educate students about pedestrian and bicycle safety and encourage walking and biking to school.

Private and public schools, PTAs, neighborhood councils, local advocacy organizations, and other school-related nonprofit groups are ecnouraged to apply.

Alternatively from previous years, the mini-grant program will now have two funding rounds, one in the fall and another in the spring. The new spring funding round will provide funds to grantees in time for fall school activities, such as the International Walk to School Month in October. Applicants are eligible to receive a grant once per year.

Mini-grants can be used to fund a wide range of projects and programs at schools that support the overall goal of improving safety and encouraging more walking and bicycling to school.

Mini-grants have helped schools and non-profits to launch programs such as student safety patrols, install pedestrian crossing flags, develop and promote school traffic circulation plans, host Walk and Bike to School Month activities, lead walking school buses and bike trains, and educate kids on bike safety.

If you have an idea for a safety education or encouragement program, visit SDOT’s website  for more information on how to apply.

In addition to the application, a letter of support from the school principal must be e-mailed, mailed, or faxed to SDOT. To find out more information contact Ashley Harris at

Applications are due by 5 p.m. April 30th. Recipients will be announced by June 6 and funds will be distributed in July.

    The data was posted on a website early yesterday morning, but the site has since been taken down.
    “Snapchatters were maltreated by their draw on of third-party apps to transmit and receive snaps, a practice so as to we expressly prohibit popular our provisos of draw on exactly as they compromise our users’ security. The persons who did the hacking claim that their motivation was to raise awareness of Snapchat’s vulnerabilities.

    I think it means that weasel sometimes hide in Mullberry Bushes, and when chased around by Monkeys, they tend to POP out of the top of the Mullberry bush. Now, surprisingly, no one has ever seen this happen. I will apply for a government grant to study Weasels, Mulberry bushes, and Monkeys, and report my findings in 2009.

    You can definitely get the money you need within twenty-four hours from most payday loan services.
    This no-collateral concept gets financially balanced at the point that
    the interest rates for unsecured personal loans are very much
    higher. Obtaining a loan can seem an impossible task, especially in today’s poor economic climate.
