The National Center for Safe Routes to School requests project lists from states on an ongoing basis and then updates the information in this searchable database. Each state also may change its information anytime during the year, so the project list may change as states make their updates. The list includes the project location, funding amount, a brief description of the project, schools impacted and the year the project award was announced (note this is not always the year that the project was or will be funded).*
Generate a project list:
- At least one of the search criteria (State, Project Type or Year) is required.
- To search for more than one state or Project Type, hold down the Control key (Command key for Mac users) while clicking on your selections. To select multiple years, click the box next to the desired years.

Change in Federal SRTS Funding
In July 2012, Congress passed a new transportation bill: Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21). Beginning in October 2012, Safe Routes to School (SRTS) activities will be eligible to compete for funding alongside other programs, including the Transportation Enhancements program and Recreational Trails program, as part of a new program called Transportation Alternatives. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is charged with putting the legislation into practice, and it provides information about MAP-21 on its website.
State SRTS programs are also in the process of determining how to handle the new legislation. As the States provide information about they will proceed with Safe Routes to School, the information will be available on our State SRTS pages.
