As the name implies, Safe Routes to School Boost grants are intended to help boost Safe Routes to School efforts! These grants allow MnDOT to support communities with existing Safe Routes to School (SRTS) plans, or other comprehensive SRTS approaches, in advancing non-infrastructure strategies for schools. The strategies should support making it safe, easy and fun for students to walk, bike or roll to school. More detailed information on eligibility, funding restrictions/requirements, and the grant application materials are available on the MnDOT SRTS Boost webpage.
