Safe Routes to School Funding Opportunity


Paving the Way for Safe Routes to School- Applications due Oct.11, 2012

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH), Safe and Active Communities Branch (SACB) is soliciting applications from eligible entities to develop, implement, and evaluate a set of small-scale, low-cost educational interventions with underserved California schools.

The Bidders’ Teleconference webinar occurred on September 18, 2012.  A non-binding Letter of Intent is due on September 21, 2012.  Read notes from the webinar and the full Request for Applications under Documents and Resources for more information.

The goal of the project is to build school interest and capacity to conduct year-round interventions to improve safety for walking and bicycling in the neighborhoods surrounding their school campuses. Interventions must focus on improving safety rather than simply encouraging walking and bicycling.  To ensure success, applicants must pre-select five to eight (5-8) elementary and/or middle schools to serve as local intervention sites and have a designated champion at each of the schools.

All completed applications must be received by 5:00 p.m. on October 11, 2012.
