Federal Funds Reimburse Local Costs for Encouraging Safe Walking and Bicycling to School

The N.H. Department of Transportation has awarded all funds available for infrastructure projects. Applications for startup, travel plan, and general non-infrastructure grants were accepted through Friday, Dec. 1, 2017.

Under the federal program, states are required to use 10 to 30 percent of SRTS funds for the non-infrastructure projects. The balance, 70 to 90 percent, must be spent for infrastructure.

SRTS is a reimbursement program. Local communities must initially raise and spend the money to cover approved expenses. Federal funds will then be funneled through NHDOT to reimburse the localities 100 percent of eligible and approved costs. (Costs incurred prior to Federal Highway Administration project approval are not eligible for reimbursement.) There is no requirement for local matching funds, although communities are encouraged to supplement the limited funding under SRTS with resources available locally or through other state and federal programs.

Communities that form effective task forces and come up with the most creative ways to encourage the most students to walk and ride bikes to school will have the competitive advantage when applications are scored.
