Please save the date for the next Active Transportation Resource Center webinar, “A Closer Look at Safe Routes to School Programs in Rural California: A Guide for Communities and Partners.” The webinar will focus on the Tool for Equitably Prioritizing Rural Safe Routes to School (SRTS) Projects from our resource, Safe Routes to School Programs in Rural California: A Guide for Communities andPartners, and will include an example of how the tool was used to prioritize a project for funding by the California Transportation Commission’s Active Transportation Program (ATP). A representative of the Merced County Department of Public Health will also speak about their work with local partners to implement SRTS programs and how they successfully applied for ATP Cycle 1 funding. There will be ample time for questions and discussion.
