This searchable list is updated quarterly by State SRTS Contacts and is organized by State, project type, year, amounts, funding source, and recipient schools: http://apps.saferoutesinfo.org/project_list/. As the previous SAFETEA-LU transportation legislation established SRTS as a stand-alone program, the list of projects entered from 2006 through 2012 is complete. With the introduction of MAP-21 and its redefining of SRTS as an eligible activity among many others within the umbrella Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP), projects entered since 2013 are complete for some states but not others. This is because many states either no longer specify SRTS projects or they have opted to fund other eligible activities within TAP aside from SRTS. The same is true for the GIS-powered map, which allows access to information and locations of local projects funded by the Federal SRTS Program and is searchable by State, county, congressional district and MPO: http://maps.saferoutesinfo.org .*
How to use the list:
- Through 2012, the list captures projects announced for funding by State SRTS Programs.
- Due to changes in legislation in 2012, projects listed in 2013 and beyond do not encompass all funded projects. Instead, they should be considered illustrative of the types of projects funded by states.
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.
*Project Type Definitions
- Infrastructure — This includes, but is not limited to, sidewalk improvements; traffic calming and speed reduction improvements; pedestrian and bicycle crossing improvements; on-street bicycle facilities; off-street bicycle and pedestrian facilities; secure bicycle parking facilities; traffic diversion improvements in the vicinity of schools.

- Combined infrastructure and non-infrastructure — A project that combines infrastructure and non-infrastructure funding into a single award rather than making separate awards for each. These individual projects can include activities described in the Infrastructure and Non-infrastructure definitions listed above.
- Planning/Start-up — This includes, but is not limited to, assistance developing a comprehensive SRTS action plan setting up a SRTS program.
