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.

    I tried these shoes in store and like everyone says, it fits like a sock and hugs your foot. I’m between a 6.5-7, a 7 was snug and since I was going to wear socks with these I went a half size up to 7.5. The toe box is wide – usually after some cardio my toes feel squished in my previous non-nike shoes, but not in these bad boys! I didn’t feel any pinching or that horrible feeling where your toes scrunch into the front portion while jogging.The main problem I had with the shoe is the top of the foot (where the tongue is) was so tight it left an ident on my foot – simple fix, I just loosen the laces and all was well. What I absolutely love about the shoe is that glove-like hug it has on your foot and the flexibility you have. It is absolutely comfortable and I feel like I have more control in my steps without having my foot slipping around. I wouldn’t recommend these shoes in rainy weather for obvious reasons. I’ve only worn these at the gym and never had any problems. My cousin has done several marathons in her Nike Free 5.0 and swears by these shoes. She did mention that little rocks and pebbled would get stuck into the grooves on the bottom but she wouldn’t feel them while running.The colors are absolutely beautiful – I’m the type to match my gym attire to my shoes – I love how there’s a variety of color and customization you can do so that not every shoe is the same. I highly recommend this shoe to anyone whether you’re just “a simple cardio at the gym” type like myself or a marathon runner like my cousin. Of course try these on in stores for the fit before buying online.

    Organized crime in Minneapolis first attracted national attention in 1903 when mobster Mayor Doc Ames (1842 1911) was exposed by Lincoln Steffens in the book, The Shame of the Cities. Steffens account and subsequent trials revealed a police department recruited from ex felons shaking down the Minneapolis underworld on the Mayor’s behalf. Ames later fled the state, spending a short period as a fugitive before being arrested and extradited to Minnesota. He was convicted of receiving a bribe and sentenced to six years in prison after his death. His sentence was later appealed and overturned.

    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.
