The Highway Safety Division is responsible for administration of Missouri's Safe Routes to School federal funds. The funding is used to provide safer biking and walking accommodations for children in grades K-8, including those with disabilities.
There are two areas eligible for funding, behavioral and infrastructure. Behavioral activities may be used for public awareness and outreach campaigns, traffic education, and enforcement efforts. Infrastructure projects include engineering and construction efforts.
State, local, and regional agencies, schools, and non-profit organizations may submit applications to MoDOT to receive a grant from federal safe routes to school funds.
Applications for the 2008 grant cycle will be received from February 1, 2008 through March 31, 2008.
Qualifying applicants should submit their project/activity proposal online using MoDOT's Safe Routes to School application form, which is available by logging on to the safe routes to school grant system below. Applications may also be requested by mail from the Highway Safety Division by writing to: MoDOT Highway Safety Division, P.O. Box 270, Jefferson City, Missouri 65102 or by telephone at 800-800-2358.
