The SRTS Program Tracking Brief is prepared by the National Center for Safe Routes to School to provide information about State SRTS programs. Each quarter, it provides a tracking table summarizing key attributes from all programs.*
* In July 2012, Congress passed a transportation bill: Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21). Since October 2012, Safe Routes to School (SRTS) activities have been eligible to compete for funding alongside other programs, including the Transportation Enhancements program and Recreational Trails program, as part of a new program called Transportation Alternatives. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is charged with putting the legislation into practice, and it provides information about MAP-21 on its website.
State SRTS programs are also in the process of determining how to handle the new legislation. As the States provide information about how they will proceed with Safe Routes to School, the information will be available on our State SRTS pages.
