The National Center for Safe Routes to School is now accepting applications for 25 mini-grants of $1,000 each. The mini-grants will fund creative, youth-focused activities that meet a school’s needs and interests around safe walking and rolling to school. Funded activities may range from foundational efforts that start or sustain a program to new ideas that explore the range of benefits of safe walking and bicycling. Eligible activities will occur at an elementary or middle school in Fall 2011 and will support the overall goal of Safe Routes to School programs ─ to enable and encourage children nationwide to safely walk and bicycle to school.
