Mini grants are a great way to make immediate inroads with the Safe Routes to School movement, and start building a culture of walking, biking, and rolling at your school. These grants allow schools and communities to create programs that educate, encourage, and engage students to create healthier habits and reduce traffic around schools. Funding of up to $10,000 per school is available, with a maximum of $100,000 per applicant for 10 or more schools. A maximum of $5,000 should be set aside for a Program Coordinator and/or personnel work, with an additional $5,000 eligible for non-personnel expenses. Applications are competitive and funding is limited.
The 2020 Mini Grant RFP for the 2020-2021 school year is open and accepting applications until 5pm on Friday, March 6th.
