A new grant facilitated by the Minnesota Department of Transportation seeks to make the route to school safer for children in the state.  MnDOT announced the recipients of $3.8 million in federal grants for Safe Routes To School.  105 schools in 61 communities will benefit – including some in our area.

Schools received grants in three categories:

  •  Planning – Funding to complete a Safe Routes to School plan to help analyze existing conditions, gather public input and identify potential infrastructure and non-infrastructure solutions at K-8 schools.
  • Non-Infrastructure – Funding for education, encouragement, enforcement and evaluation activities.
  • Infrastructure – Funding for improving the environment and infrastructure around the schools such as crosswalks and trails.

S.Since 2005, MnDOT has awarded nearly $15.5 million in federal funds to communities to support Safe Routes To School.  The majority of the funding – $13.1 million – was awarded for infrastructure projects.
