Safe Routes to School

Information on the Safe Routes to School website applies only to projects awarded during or before calendar year 2013. See the Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) website for current information.

SAFETEA-LU was revised by Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21), the federal transportation act that was signed into law on July 6, 2012. MAP-21 provisions took effect on October 1, 2012. SRTS programs remain eligible for federal funding pursuant to MAP-21. MAP-21 integrates SRTS-type projects into the Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP); a more comprehensive funding category. Separate funding and administration of SRTS programs is not a component of MAP-21 legislation.

Please see Section E of Federal Highway Administration guidance for a list of categories that are eligible for TAP funding. Please see the TAP website for information regarding training for SRTS infrastructure projects.
