Have an idea for getting more kids to walk and bike to school? Maybe it’s getting crosswalk flags, starting a student safety patrol program, pulling together a Walk to School Day event (which you now have 7 months to plan 😊), painting an intersection, or organizing a walking school bus or bike train program.
During the month of April (t-minus 2-ish days!), we’re accepting applications for our Safe Routes to School Mini-Grant Program, which provides grants of up to $1,000 to schools, PTAs, and community groups for education and encouragement programs for walking and biking to school.
Applying is so easy! 👇👀👇
Whatever your idea is (as long as it supports our overall goal of safety education and encouraging walking/biking to school), we can help you make it happen! 👊
All public and private K-12 schools within the City of Seattle, PTAs, parents, and other school-related nonprofit groups are eligible to apply. It’s a great way to support Seattle’s Vision Zero efforts to improve safety for all travelers, especially our youngest!
Head to the Safe Routes to School Mini-Grant Program page, where you can download the application or apply online.
You’ll also need to include a letter of support from the school principal (mailed or emailed by Monday, April 30, 2018.)
Completed applications are due Monday, April 30, 2018, by 5 PM. We’ll notify applicants of awards the first week of June, and distribute funds in July.
