There is growing concern in Utah and across the nation about the safety of children who walk or bike to school. With increased traffic congestion around schools, students who choose to walk or bike have limited safe routes, which discourages this healthy activity.

The main goal of the Safe Routes Grants program is to encourage and assist students living within 1.5-2 miles to safely walk or bike to school. Available grant funding can be used for projects that include non-infrastructure; e.g. education and encouragement, and infrastructure physical improvements; new sidewalks, school pavement markings, signage, bicycle parking, etc.
