Getting Started - Everything You Need to Initiate a Local SRTS Program

Although applications for federal funds are no longer accepted, John Corrigan, the state coordinator, remains available to meet with interested people in their communities to discusss safe walking and bicycling between home and school. Using a PowerPoint presentation, he will give an overview of the program, answer any questions, and discuss local issues. He will also put you in touch with a Regional Planning Commission for technical assistance and help with preparing a travel plan and funding application. Meetings can be scheduled at the convenience of local leaders, with early morning and evening appointments available.
