December 2006 Status Report

The Monthly SRTS Program Tracking Brief is prepared by the National Center for Safe Routes to School to provide information about State SRTS programs. Each month, a different snapshot and brief analysis of one key trend across all State programs is presented. It also provides a tracking table summarizing key attributes from all programs.

Of the 16 states, 10 (20% of all states) have gone through a competitive application process, announcing over $13.8 million in funding for local programs. These programs include infrastructure improvements to make walking and bicycling safer and more appealing for children, and SRTS education, encouragement, and enforcement activities. Seven states have announced a total of about $3.8 million for statewide SRTS activities.

Also as of December 1, 2006, 49 states, including the District of Columbia, have State-level SRTS programs in various stages of progress. These range from being in the early stages of developing their application processes to three states that have already opened or closed a second application
cycle to fund local SRTS programs.
