NJDOT Safe Routes Academy: Funding Your Bicycle & Pedestrian Project

The New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) will sponsor the annual Safe Routes Academy each Thursday in September.

The NJ Safe Routes Academy features free online sessions to help participants make their communities more walk- and bike-friendly for all users of all abilities. It's designed for parents, teachers, students, municipal leaders, local volunteers, and anyone else interested in improving conditions for walking and bicycling. Learn about the best practices and resources that you can use to increase safety and accessibility in your community.

The Sept. 7 session will provide participants with information about applying for Safe Routes to School grants, administered by the NJDOT in partnership with the state’s Metropolitan Planning Organizations. Topics that will be covered include:

  • Overview of Federal Aid programs and the Safe Routes to School Program
  • Detailed Review of the Safe Routes to School Grant Application
  • Grant Application Process
  • Grant Resources, Tips & Strategies
  • Q&A with NJDOT Local Aid Staff

The session is designed to assist you with making your grant application stronger to turn your project into a reality.
