Federal Safe Routes to School Program Progress Report

This report aims to describe how federal and state agencies met the requirements of the legislation; the program’s reach and types of projects funded; and an overview of how state programs are administered.

To further explore issues related to funding and project delivery, the report examines obligation rates of SRTS funds and the practices perceived as supports and hindrances to obligation. The time frame for this report spans the passage of the legislation in August 2005 to December 31, 2010, at which point the legislation had been extended as new transportation legislation had not been passed.

The report’s aim is to inform policy and program decisions for FHWA, State SRTS Coordinators, and policymakers and stakeholders at the federal, state and local levels.
